Migrate content seamlessly

No matter your migration size — gigabyte, petabyte, or anywhere in between — Box Shuttle gets it done your way: all at once, in phases, or ongoing as you need it. With on-prem and cloud connectors, you centralize your content, configure permissions, and manage version history from one place.

Tailor to your business needs

Build a solid scope for your Box Shuttle migration, so it’s manageable for you and your teams. Rely on analytics to size up the content across your source tools. Remap ownership, structure folders, and control permissions (and sharing) for users and groups. Run simulations of your settings before you migrate to validate your configuration.

Keep work moving

Your cloud migration runs in the background, so you can continue to work on critical projects. Teams can work in Box or in source applications and files, and Box Shuttle will recognize and maintain any edits or additions. Afterward, review summary reporting, or dive into file-by-file details of your migration outcomes.

Automatically apply your settings

Content stays secure from the moment you migrate. With frictionless security settings immediately applied, you can power workflows and collaborate with anyone (inside or outside your business) without delay or added work.

Key features


Connect to both on-premises and cloud tools like file servers, Microsoft OneDrive, SharePoint Online and SharePoint Server, Google Drive, Dropbox, AWS, Azure, and GCP.

Analysis tools

Analyze and report on file migration source content. Gather details like file size, type, ownership, permissions, and more to help you scope and plan your migration.

Configuration tools

Migrate as much data as you need — from single files to petabytes of data. Configure individual migrations, and manage settings like file exclusions, bandwidth, file version migration.

Location mapping

Select where content on the source should live in Box at both the owner and folder level. Automatically apply owner-specific user settings to migrated content.

Permission management

Select whether to migrate permissions or just content. Map users on your source to users in Box, expand or restrict permissions, or skip conflicts when more in-depth assessment is needed.


Validate configuration and mapping before your cloud migration. Get details like expected transfer duration, bottlenecks, folder and file quantities. Plus, access file-by-file details.


Run your migration and transfer your source content to Box without any disruption to your workday. Migrated content is copied from the source, and doesn’t overwrite existing data.


Review robust post-migration reporting, including high-level summary details, visualizations of data, and deep, file-by-file results to audit migration outcomes when needed.

Delta sync

Re-run completed jobs to migrate any new or updated data on the source to Box, so teams keep working while migration runs. Delta syncs don’t overwrite edits to content already made in Box.
