Hi. I think you might be confused or the requirement is not quite clear. Power Bi is not a storage. You can't save your data in Power Bi. You can read it from OneDrive and create analytics about them.

You can't migrate folder or files from Onedrive to Power Bi. You can only read that data.

I hope that make sense

Hi @mkathi0405 

Do you want to connect to a folder on OneDrive? You can enter the link of  your OneDrive for Business folder like the following to the SharePoint Folder connector. Then Transform data in Power Query and filter the ‘Folder Path’ column to the folder you want to connect. For more details, you can refer Power BI> Get Data from OneDrive for Business(Folder as a source.

 

The form of the link: https://mydomain-my.sharepoint.com/personal/user_mydomain.com

 

Best Regards
