SPS 2001: make a copy of previous versions of docs

  Asked By: Nirmal    Date: Dec 10    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1334

I need to « dismantle » a Sharepoint 2001 installation and I have to copy all my
users' Sharepoint folders and documents to other environments, most of them on a
file server. It can be done very easily through Windows Explorer "drag-and-drop"
from workspaces that I access to with "My Network Places". But I have a huge
folder where the user wants to retain all previous versions of the documents.
Does anyone have an idea how I can do this in a semi-automatical way? So far,
the only way I found is by right-clicking on the documents, properties,
versions, then opening each version in Office and saving it to a target file
folder. It will take me forever to complete the task...

I dont know much about Sharepoint 2001, but I think in Sharepoint 2003
there is tool called SMigrate which is provided in Sharepoint 2003.
Smigrate.exe is a Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services utility that
can be used to back up and restore a Web site on a server running
Windows SharePoint Services. This utility is used when migrating a
SharePoint Team Services deployment to Windows SharePoint Services.
You can download it from
Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server
Extensions\60\Bin has the exe.
I think the tool backs up the entire site along with the data.
Just read the documentation and also gather some information before
trying it out.

"giraudyp.perso.cegetel.net/.../Tech13.htm" link
has good information on Smigrate.
