17) What is the difference between Attach2Dynamics and SharePoint Security Sync?

18) What are the advantages of using the Bulk Attachment Migration Tool?

In order to migrate historical data from the CRM to various cloud storage services. We've implemented two distinct options. The Bulk Migration Job and the Bulk Migration Tool.

With the Bulk Migration Job feature, you can move bulk attachments from CRM to SharePoint, Azure Blob Storage, and Dropbox. Whereas with the Bulk Migration tool, you can move bulk attachments from CRM to SharePoint, and Azure Blob Storage.

We have incorporated the Bulk Migration Job feature into our solution to facilitate the migration of historical data from the CRM to respective cloud storage. The Bulk Migration Job allowed us to migrate the data between specific time frame.

However, the Bulk Migration Job resides within CRM and is dependent on CRM resources, which may lead to extended migration durations.

To address the need for a faster migration process, we have developed the Bulk Migration Tool. This tool is a Windows tool, so it operates independently of CRM resources. Consequently, it can efficiently migrate large volumes of data within a significantly shorter timeframe.

The Bulk Migration Tool essentially replicates the functionality of the Bulk Migration Job but offers the advantage of speed.

Note: We recommend migrating history attachments in batches of 4 to 5 month period for optimal performance.
