• The previously migrated content
Temp Space Requirement
You can get the minimum temporary space required by UMT for document migration in the summary page.
Document Instance selection
While selecting the Importing Pending/recurrence Instances option in Object select page, you can choose the only pending/recurrence instances to migrate and you can ignore the older instances. It will help you to avoid unwanted / old completed instances in your migrated system.
