The ShareGate migration tool stores your data in Microsoft Azure before it gets imported to Microsoft 365. Clearing the contents will delete all containers and queues that were created by the ShareGate migration tool in this storage account. This operation cannot be undone and the data will be lost.
Any migrations using Insane mode should be completed before trying to clear the data.
Note: When using the default storage account, you cannot clear the data manually. Your data is automatically deleted after a maximum of one week.
Clear session data in storage account
To clear data (containers and queues) that was created by the ShareGate migration tool for specific migration sessions, go to Tasks and delete the specified migration report.
