I am trying to migrate some document libraries and lists using SPD from one site collection to another. (I have well researched this and am very aware that the best method is a console app) I stumbled upon the export features in Sharepoint designer but couldn't find file size limits. Sharepoint designer 2007 export or import a web package
I was trying to use either a personal web package or a .cmp file but as the lists get bigger errors appear. The only thing I am adding to the package is the doc library I want to export.
Web Package "L:\My Web Package.fwp" creation failed. This could be due to network problems or other external changes to the source web site.
(Also, I am running SPD as a remote app and for some reason my export->file menu item is grayed out. If know why this happens as well please let me know.)
Update: The file menu item being grayed out was due to a administrative restriction on the remote app server.
