Full Compare

This option will generate a report of all the differences between the selected sites and subsites (if selected). Unlike the "Quick Compare" interactive approach, this report will automatically crawl and collect all the differences, which will then be saved to a CSV file for viewing.

info

NOTE: Depending on the amount of content and selected options, this may require an extended amount of time. For this reason, the report is run in the background.

The completed report, (stored as a csv file), may be loaded into this interface using the "Load Compare Report" button (see the Load Compare Report section for more details on loading a compare report).

1.In the Migrator tab, select Live Compare from the Sites section.

Use Enhanced Content Compare: This option will use the last modified date to identify differences in content that exists in both sites (lists and libraries). Normally the comparison is limited to identifying differences in content that exists in one site but not the other.

info

NOTE: Depending on the amount of content this comparison may require extended periods of time.

Include Item Level Permissions: The differences in Item Level Permissions between the selected sites or lists will be analyzed as part of the compare.

info

NOTE: Permission comparison may require extended periods of time depending on the amount of content and permissions

Include Group Membership: The differences in the Group Memberships between the selected sites or lists will be analyzed as part of the compare.
 
User Mapping: This option should be used in the event that a mapping file was used during the initial copy from source to target. This is especially useful if you have mapped accounts from source to target.
 
Include Subsites: Any subsites for the selected sites will be analyzed as part of the compare.

info

NOTE: Depending on the amount of subsites this comparison may require extended periods of time.
