We have one requirement we want to extract around 100GB data from SharePoint 2007 library files and metadata into physical location.

If any interruption while downloading files we have to resume from that scratch.

Since it is SP 2007 we are unable to move with PowerShell/ CSOM.

My Idea would be console application, Please suggest me if any other options to accomplish this task.

What I have tried:

Investigated with CSOM and PowerShell approaches but using both the approaches we are unable to accomplish this task.


Using PowerShell,you can create backup or template file using Export object.

So here is Approaches,

  1. Using PowerShell/CSOM/SOM: Get Library object and iterate each items property, insert in csv and download linked files.

  2. Using Hybrid(PowerShell+OOTB):It will save your time, Download files using PowerShell and then using "Export to Excel" option given in Library ribbon. enter image description here

  3. Use 3rd party Applications like ShareGate or this.
