We need to move a client from Sharepoint 2007 Standard to Sharepoint 2010. The New Sharepoint 2010 standard server installation is on a different server. The client uses sharepoint 2007 to hold all their document. How can I transfer the documents and user settings?.
The Sharepoint 2007 runs on Windows 2008 R2 32 bit, the Sharepoint 2010 runs on Windows 2008 R2 64 bit.
