When you use parse.com migration tool, your existing files are not migrated and keep stored in parse.com S3 bucket. At the same time, you will have files being uploaded through back4app.com API and being stored in back4app.com S3 bucket but you will also have files being uploaded through parse.com API and being stored in parse.com S3 bucket. Summarizing, you will have three “kinds” of files:

1) Your existing ones in parse.com S3 bucket;
2) Your new ones uploaded by the users that have already updated their apps, through back4app.com API and being stored in back4app.com S3 bucket;
3) Your new ones uploaded by the users that not have yet updated their apps, through parse.com API and being stored in parse.com S3 bucket.
