I having issues migrating files over from one SharePoint to another, I have attempted to zip and "7zip" them using the explorer view from one site and then extract them on to the other size I am hitting various errors. Document names are being shown but the files when opening them are blank.

How can i move files over without them being corrupted from one SharePoint to another?

I am using SharePoint 2010 foundation.


  1. Copy your SharedPoint document library URL for example, http://sumon-pc/sites/dc/ts/Shared Documents
  2. Open Windows Explorer, right click My Computer and select Map Network Drive
  3. Choose drive letter that you want to use, then enter the URL that you copied in step 1. Then click finish. If prompt for username and password enter your SharePoint login username and password
  4. Now users can access SharePoint document library from Windows Explorer but they need to have privilege to the relevant document library that you mapped.
  5. After that you can see all document in your mapped drive.
  6. just copy all documents to local hard drive.
  7. map the document library in which you want to upload document using above same steps & upload them.

Kindly check my answer on below post.

Download all files in a Documents Library and upload them to a different SharePoint Installation
