Hi Experts,

I am going to a remote location that is using a sharepoint website and I am asked to bring the contents from a sharepoint site. The idea is to bring the contents like the forms and word files from this sharepoint site and then our IT guys will be putting it onto a new sharepoint site. This part of a the take over that our IT is doing.

Can I please know how to acheive this task as I am going to do this by tomorrow. If I can get step by step instructions will be helpful.

Thanks,

This is how you get the content and put it back on another server

Basically you get a SQL Backup of the content DB, or perform a SharePoint backup, and that's the file you can use.

If this is a total migration, wondering how you're handing authentication? Were the existing client using AD? Can you point the new instance to that from your new servers?

Ok thanks,

The AD accounts will be created the idea is to move users out from the existing network to the new on with new accounts and similar share point. What I did was i went the to libraries and actions --> view in explorer and copied the files to a local disk.

Thanks,

You mentioned Forms as well as Word documents in your question. Were they documents too, or SharePoint forms?

Copying the content database is the way to know you've captured everything including customizations that may have been made to the pages (web parts placed etc).
