How to transfer Documents Library from Sharepoint 2.0 to Sharpoint 3.0

Posted on 2011-05-11
Last Modified: 2012-08-13
I have a WSS 2.0 box with a library of about 1 GB. I need to transfer the data to another server running WSS 3.0. What would be the best option for this. Keep in mind, that I do not need to transfer modification history or any audit relevant information. I just need to migrate the data over? Thanks in advance.

WSS 2.0
Windows Server 2003
SQL Server 2000
IIS 6.0

WSS 3.0
Windows Server 2008
SQL Server 2005
IIS 7.0

    I have successfully done this by opening both libraries in Explorer View and copying between the libraries, just like Windows Explorer.

    Not a fancy method, but if you don't need to retain any metadata or versions, etc, it works fine.
