There is no migration tool.

One way is to download from cFolders do your local drive and uploading into Document Center a well. If a user would download it into a synced Folder on their local PC it would get automatic uploaded into Document Center (Requires native Windows Client).

As the Folder structure has to be recreated manually, this is only a reasonable way for small number of files.

As cFolders has an native API and Document Center is also based on a CMIS interface, a migration program could be developed by customers to reduce/eliminate the manual steps for their users.

Hi Ashwani,

Thanks for your response. In the meanwhile we tried using SAP NetWeaver Portal Drive and using WebDAV option within cFolders configured the Portal Drive to have the files within Windows Explorer and then moved them to SAP Document Center. Kindly let me know if this could be an option.



We have to get the files to Windows Explorer and then Document Center can take over. Give it a try and share your findings.
