Download content can be used for archiving content from SharePoint lists, libraries, and sites. Here are the options that can be specified:
- Include subsites
- Flatten folder hierarchy
- Version history
- Limit to X latest versions
Select this option to export the content from all the subsites of the selected sites recursively.
Note: This option is only available if you selected at least one site to export.
Flatten folder hierarchy
This option allows you to completely eliminate any folder structure you had when copying to the destination and put every document at the top-level.
Select this option if you want to export all the versions of your items, otherwise, only the latest version will be exported.
Note: this option can greatly slow down the export process if the exported items have a lot of versions as the ShareGate migration tool will have to download the document and/or metadata for each version.
Limit to X latest versions
This option allows you to keep only a portion of the version history, which is faster than exporting all the versions. When selected, the ShareGate migration tool will only export the specified number of versions (starting from the latest) for each item.
Note: This option is only available if you check Version history first.
