Lightroom CC: Move albums out of 'migrated ....' folder

When I imported my catalog into Lightroom CC I found that all my albums are under a top-level folder called 'Migrated '.  

My questions is what happens if i move all content out of that folder to the top-level so I don't have that single top-level folder but all albums and folders directly on the top-level?


Will this somehow affect the sync with Lightroom Classic (e.g. in a way that albums are no longer synced because LR Classic does not find them anymore etc.)?


Or can I freely move them?

I noticed the same thing and had the same concern. After days of preparation and migration I didn’t want to break things at this final stage.
I needn’t have worried.
I did a few trial moves. Everything worked OK. So I moved everything to top level and eventually deleted the Migration collection.
Good luck!
