@Don Jones – Maybe I was not clear this script works only for Files within the File Share and doesn't do Folders, can you please assist.
I have a File Share called \\abc\store123\home and it has below folders

Store Documents
HR Documents

All these needs to be copied to the document libraries of that Store SharePoint Site in o365

Store Documents (Document Library)
HR Documents (Document Library)
Videos (Document Library)
