Hyper Mode performs bulk migration from Non-SharePoint Locations to Office 365 Locations and between Office 365 locations. This feature is only available through the Drive's tab migration wizards not directly from the Navigator.


NOTE: Only one hyper migration/backup job can run at a time.


Global and SharePoint Administrators

A Global or SharePoint Administrator account must be used in order to perform full migrations. An account with less privileges will only be able to perform a limited set of migrations.

Essential tool requests certain user roles to starts and successfully finish hyper migration or hyper backup jobs. These administrative accounts are required to connect to the tenant level, to each site collection, users OneDrive’s, Office 365 groups, Microsoft Teams sites, etc. In order to connect to all of this you must be either a  Global Administrator or a SharePoint Administrator. If you use an Exchange Administrator or Billing Administrator, or any other user role, the Migration will fail. This is because Essentials will not be able to access the target site collection in order to  upload content and/or the azure job would be restricted by Office 365.  

Hyper Backup Projects Structure

The Hyper Backup functionality provides users with additional backup functionality, such as a new way of storing content, pausing and resuming hyper backup jobs, a faster user interface and better performance.
