I am thinking about using the IIS7 export feature. Seems like you can export/import an entire site or the entire IIS server. Has anyone used this? I am better off just creating the sites manually and copying over the files?

I typically do it manually but you could use the web deployment tool.  It should work with IIS 7 also.

Thanks, I will try the export tool and see if that does the job. I will do one site at a time and report back.
