FileImport CMS 7.5


Hi we would like to import files to a EPiserver CMS 7.5
The customer has a disk with alot of files and folders, what would be the best way to batch those files and folders to the new mediasystem in CMS 7.5.
It is important that the folderstructure is intact that is the same structure is built in Episerver as the one on disk.

One approach is to use the VPP migration tool,

It supports VirtualPathNativeProvider so you could first configure a VirtualPathNativeProvider to the existing file structure and then run the migration tool to convert them into content based files/folders.

Is that a correct approach? This is not an upgrade from an existing site, doesn't the migration tool works from an existing database (which was migrated from previous version who used the VPP filesystem).

I solved it, iterated the files and folders on disk and created an exact match of the diskstructure in EPiServer mediasystem.
