If you're willing to spend money, I've used Metalogix Content Matrix to do this type of task (including within a farm, between farms of both the same and different versions, and from a farm to the cloud). It worked very well for me and can save metadata and versioning.


Follow the below methods to move files while maintaining all metadata properties and version history:

Method 1: Using Content and Structure to move files with versions and Metadata

Method 2: Programmatically – move document with version history

Using PowerShell to maintain file version history when moving/copying files between SharePoint sites
