How to download your SharePoint & Office 365 content using ShareGate

Video Transcript:

In this video, we will see how you can use ShareGate’s Download content option to easily export the content of your SharePoint or Office 365 environments.

Archive, Export/ Download, or move content from SharePoint

Whether it is to archive content, export the content of a site before decommissioning it, or for any other reasons, you can easily export content from your environments using ShareGate. To do so, simply select the sites, lists, or libraries from which you want to export the content in the Explorer and click on Download content.

Download SharePoint content exactly how you want it

In the Download options, you’ll be able to specify if you want to flatten the folder hierarchy of your lists and libraries and specify the number of versions to download. If you’re downloading the content of sites, you can specify if you want to do it for its subsites as well.

Clicking on Download Content will open the file explorer where you’ll be able to specify where you’d like the content downloaded.

ShareGate keeps SharePoint content organized

For each site, list, or library included in your selection, ShareGate will create a folder in which you’ll find the content itself. But that’s not it! ShareGate will also create an Excel sheet for each list and library in which you’ll be able to find all the metadata. This way, no data is lost in the process.

As you can see, archiving content from SharePoint is made easier than ever with ShareGate.
