Do you have at minimum Contribute access to the target library? Is the Document ID feature enabled in the target site? The Document ID is enabled by default in document centers and if the feature is not activated in the target location it may cause an error. Also, the source library is over the list view threshold, and that causes lots of problems.

I'd confirm your access to the target and enable the Document ID feature. If you still have issues then per the error message, contact your server/farm administrator and request they either export/import the files on your behalf or temporarily increase the list view threshold and attempt the move again.

  • hi there is another way to do this bcz doc lib has large no of files
