Backing Up and Restoring Sites

With SharePoint Designer, you can use three different methods of packaging your sites content:

  • Backup and Restore, where you create a content migration package (.cmp). Use this method when you need to copy or move an entire site or child site to another server or location.

  • Export and Import, using Personal Web Packages (.fwp). Use this method to share or reuse a site, list, or library structure. It does not include list items, only the list structure. It can be used to copy files, but only as part of the library structure.
