See Overview of Importing for previous steps in setting up a local migration.
When you select a Local or Network File Directory as an Import Source, List Bulk Import automatically replicates the file structure and displays replication options. Versioning is not available for local files.
- Copy folders and subfolders: If you do not check this box, only the top level source folder will be copied. None of the contents will be copied. Checking this box imports the entire folder structure of the Directory, but not the files.
- Copy files within folders: This option enables copying the files in the imported folders. If you do not enable copying folders/subfolders, it will only copy files from the parent folder.
- Duplicate Records: In the Target pane, set duplicate settings. If the target is a Picture or Document Library, users can only check for duplication based on the target column Name, which is the file name because a file with the same name cannot be imported twice to the same library. See Manage Duplicate Records for additional details.
- Delete Existing Target List: Erase the contents of the list prior to the migration.
Save the import template if you’d like to replicate the import in the future or schedule it.
When you’re done configuring the migration, click “Migrate” to continue.
