While writing this post, I discover an issue while migrating blog content to SharePoint Online. The issue was pictures associated with blog posts published using Live Writer (and so stored as attachments on SharePoint) were not migrated. This issue is not really a product bug as this way of blog posting is using specific SharePoint API’s. I’m really impressed by the quality and the responsiveness of AvePoint Support team.
