Migrate PDF files from WPDM to EPDM

We will begin moving to EPDM in the next month or two.  We currently have the "create PDF files in the vault on normal check-in of SolidWorks drawings" setting checked in WPDM.  As a result we have several thousand PDFs available in WPDM for our SolidWorks drawings.  Has anyone been able to migrate these PDF files into EPDM, without having to recreate all these in EPDM?  I understand how the files are named in EPDM (_PDF) and how they are stored (saved in a document sub folder).  It doesn't seem to be too difficult to have each of these files re-named to its appropriate file name and then checked-in to EPDM.  My VAR said the migration tool will not bring these over.  Has anyone been able to bring these in quickly or easily?  I would prefer if we did not have to batch create all the PDF files for SolidWorks drawings again in EPDM, especially for assembly drawings.  Thoughts?
