Dear Readers,

Thought I would point you towards this incredibly useful tool from Quest Software that Ilia Sotnikov (see his blog here: told me about.

It is a BETA version of the Reorganization Wizard feature that will be included in the upcoming version of Quest Migration Manager for SharePoint (

This tool is incredibly powerful and allows you to overcome some of the major limitations of both MOSS & WSS. Using this tool you can achieve the following:

  • Move/Reorganise SharePoint Subsites (e.g.Moving a Subsite to a Site Collection) – whilst keeping all custom Metadata and Auditing data.
  • Move Site Collections within the same SharePoint Farm
  • Promote parts of a site tree to a new site collection on the same or different web application
  • Optimize SharePoint database storage by moving site collections between content databases
  • Perform cascaded site deletes to finalize the site move or roll back a failed operation

We have been using this Beta version to move some subsites around in our WSS farm. I was impressed with the fact that the move keeps the Auditing data as an STSADM Import/Export normally erases this.

You can download the tool from the following link –

Well done Quest Software and thanks Ilia!
