Copy Site Collections and My Sites Without Loading into the Navigator Pane

The application provides a means to copy multiple sites or site collection from a single web application without preloading the sites in the Navigation pane.  A common scenario for this is copying My Sites.

info

NOTE:

·For the process of migrating My Sites, Essentials for Office 365 does not provision a new My Site in the destination farm.  It is required that all My Sites already exist in the destination and Essentials will migrate the contents of the Personal and Shared libraries into this site.

·This operation requires the user to have access to Central Admin and is not currently supported for Office 365.

1.In the Migrator Ribbon select the Copy Site button and the Copy Site Collections/MySites option.
