Metalogix Essentials for Office 365 2.4 - Advanced Installation Guide

Analyze Box

This option allows Essentials to analyze Box, creating a report that provides an overview of the number of folders, subfolders, and files contained in each selected user's account. The report then rates the priority of each account by it's size. 


NOTE: if you attempt to connect or open a Box drive through the software and it does not respond, please review the section Alternate Framework.

This operation has the following requirements for use:

·The account used to perform the migration from Box needs to have Full Enterprise Admin access to the Box tenant.

Once the requirements above are satisfied, you can proceed with your Box analysis.
