Sharepoint migration from Microsoft Online Services to local SBS 2011 server
Posted on 2011-10-04
A new client of mine have been using Sharepoint (via Microsoft Online Services) to store documents and use a basic calendar. They've now got their own local SBS 2011 server and I want to take all that sharepoint information from Microsoft Online and push it into the new server.
I've spoken to the Microsoft Tech support guy and they use Sharepoint 2007 on their side, where as the new server has 2010 Foundation. He suggested using Sharepoint Designer 2007 to try to backup the data, although he didn't seem to think I could use that to restore data to Sharepoint Foundation 2010. I've also seen that there is a Sharepoint Designer 2010, so I'm not sure if I can use this in some way?
Truth be told I'm not really up to speed with Sharepoint, I don't want to have to put everything back manually - so I throw it open to you experts! Any help would be greatly appreciated, I don't really want to do it all manually.
The most important thing really would be their company calendar which they use for all their appointments etc. I can move the files manually if required.
