SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I want to export a SharePoint site with the GUI. I tried the two options, with and without content. But both ways are not working. When I export a site, a correlation id is displayed.

What is the reason for this exception? It is possible to repair it?

In the log files are the following entries:

08/02/2011 15:11:45.31 w3wp.exe (0x17FC) 0x2920 SharePoint Foundation General 8e2s Medium Unknown SPRequest error occurred. More information: 0x8000ffff 'GUID'

Is the export working a) on a different site within the same site collection? b) on a different site collection within the same web app? c) on a different wep app within the same farm? Did you apply any customizations to your site? –  AlexPoint Aug 2 '11 at 20:29
    
a) We haven’t tried all sites but it appears, that all sites within the site collection are affected. b) Other Site collection are not affected, but here again, we haven’t tried all site collections. c) Same as b) d) Customizations in place are in use in other site collections as well. –  LaPhi Aug 3 '11 at 8:54
