The File Module contains options to configure the searches of files which have to migrate. RealMigrator searches these files and copies them to a defined destination.

Upload Store

Upload stores always support basic file operations (upload file, create directory). They can support delete operations on files and directories to support proper synchronization. In addition, they can support blockmode uploads, which enable differential uploads based on hash maps.



File: Writes to a file back-end, either local or on a file server OneDrive: Stores to the user's OneDrive via a RealMigrator server Graph API Blob Storage: Stores a blob storage via RealMigrator server Blob API

Root path

Default root path

Diff file size

Default size are 4 MB. When a file exceeding this size it will be uploaded in blocks. It is possible to define a own size

Diff block size

When a file has to uploaded in blocks the default size is 1 MB

Path blacklist

Paths which are listed in a blacklist are excluded from all catalogs and will not be part of migrations (see [Well-known folder] ({{< ref "modules/wellknownfolder/" >}}) for folder (paths) list)


A catalog defines which files RealMigrator has to migrate and where to find them.

Log level and Reset code


Log level

Available log levels are Error, Info and Debug.

Reset Code

A client is always checking the own configurations after a defined period of time. This means that the client compares the selected client settings with the selected server settings. In addition the client connect to the server based on [Module loop delay]({{< ref "beginning/serverconfig/" >}}), a defined period of time. By this time value the client is starting a Module loop and the client is checking the Reset code. If there is a Reset code change the client will takes over the new configuration. If there is no change, the client will still use the existing configuration.

Power mode

If this mode is activated, power down is prevented during migration.


RealMigrator offers a default script for File. But it is possible to edit the existing script or to write a new script.

Reset Button

If you click the Reset button in the Config tab or in the Script tab, all your entries will be reset to the RealMigrator default values.

To accept the default values, you have to click Save at the top of the page.
