Can I still follow the folder format in my file share when I migrate my files to SharePoint?

While SharePoint can accommodate your folder structure similar to your file share, we think it’s no longer needed. SharePoint has a powerful search capability that simplifies the way you organise and categorise your files. It does most notably through the use of metadata. Tagging your files in a consistent way will make it easier to find them for future use, without the need to dig through heaps of folders.
