Copy Sites

The application can copy entire sites (with sub-sites) from one site or site collection to another.  There are three different methods to copy sites:

·Copy and paste method.

·Copying sites without loading the source and the target in the navigation pane.

·Copying Site Collections and My Sites without loading the source and target in the navigation pane.

 

 

Copy and Paste Method

This is the most common and simple approach to copying sites. It requires the user to, in most cases, have the source and target loaded into the Navigation pane (refer to Connecting to SharePoint for additional information).

1.In the navigator pane, locate the site(s) you wish to copy. Hold down the CTRL key to select multiple individual items or SHIFT key to select multiple consecutive items.

2.After you have selected the source site(s) there are several ways to identify the destination location:

·You may simply Drag-and-Drop the Sites.

·Use the Copy and Paste options from the right-click menu.

·Use the Copy and Paste buttons in the Clipboard section of the ribbon.

3.The application will bring up the Site Migration Wizard. Please proceed to the Site Migration Wizard section for further instructions on how to run through this wizard.

NOTE: If multiple sites are selected for copy, we advise only using the Copy Site to New Site option. Selecting a different option may result in conflicts during the copy process. Review and select the appropriate options.

Copy Sites Without Loading The Source or Target Site in the Navigator Pane

In some cases it is preferable to copy a site or site collection without loading the source or target site. In order to do this follow these instructions:

1.In the Migrator Ribbon select the Copy Site button and select the Copy Site option.

Copy Site Collections and My Sites Without Loading into the Navigator Pane

The application provides a means to copy multiple sites or site collection from a single web application without preloading the sites in the Navigation pane.  A common scenario for this is copying My Sites.

info

NOTE:

·For the process of migrating My Sites, Essentials for Office 365 does not provision a new My Site in the destination farm.  It is required that all My Sites already exist in the destination and Essentials will migrate the contents of the Personal and Shared libraries into this site.

·This operation requires the user to have access to Central Admin and is not currently supported for Office 365.

1.In the Migrator Ribbon select the Copy Site button and the Copy Site Collections/MySites option.
