Hi,

You can save the document library as template(.stp file) with include content as marked from ,
Document Library >> Settings

then go to List template gallery and download the .stp file saved.

after this you can upload this .stp file to your new sharpoint server and create new library based on this template.

Thanks

The easiest way to move document libraries is to recreate them on the new server, open them both with the windows explorer view and copy them.
Another possiblity is to use the content deployment wizard:

Hi Krunal,

I have followed you instruction and saved the library as an .stp, downloaded from old server and uploaded it as a template to the new site on the new server.
however, I'm not sure how I can created a new library based on that .stp.
When I try to create a new library, the options available in Document Template are the default ones, I don't see the new template.
Have I done something wrong?

Hi MsShadow,

Will your solution work with WSS 3.0?

Hi,
you can goto,

Settings >> Site libraries and list >> Create new content

here you will find the name of your uploded .stp file under the Libraries section

click on it and create the library

Hi,

here is the complete description for the copying sharepoint list, the same steps you need to follow for the document library.

Krunal, I think you forgot to add the link :)

Take into account that .stp files cannot hold a lot of data, so if the document library is big your approach will not work.
Caratech, my solution works with wss 3.0
