    Removing MOSS 2007 and backing up all files

    We will be going through the process of removing SharePoint 2007 over this Christmas period as we are having another VLE imposed upon us instead.

    We've used MOSS 2007 for the last 4 years so there is a huge amount of files on there that people have stored in shared document libraries, personal sites and various faculty sites.

    Can anyone think of an easy way of backing up all these files? I'd like to retrieve them from SharePoint and store them in a shared folder on a different server instead if possible. That way staff can take out what they want and upload it to our new VLE.

    Thanks.

    I'd be inclined to leave it running in read-only mode for a specified length of time and let the users do it. You can use setSiteLock in stsadm to do this
    Setsitelock: Stsadm operation (Office SharePoint Server)

    Other than that on a document library basis you can use Explorer view to drag the lot out into Windows Explorer.

    There will be plenty of third party tools to do this, but I haven't got experience of any in this area.

    Of course depending on the VLE and the SLT view, you could still use SharePoint for document storage, possbily with links into the other VLE.

    Thanks Richard, the sitelock idea is a good plan.

    We're actually move to whole new domain over the Christmas period, hence the new VLE and move from SharePoint. Do you think it would be technically possible to remove our current SQL server and web-front end from our domain, and run them stand alone with a single user license just to refer back to in future if needed?
