Currently we are migrating HTML and Notes Database data to SharePoint due project timeline, We plan to migrate content first in to staging environment and use SharePoint Content Deployment Wizard to export site's and Import in to Production environment.
The SharePoint Content Deployment Wizard is a tool for SharePoint 2007 which provides the means to deploy the following content:
- site collections
- list items (including files)
1. Content deployment does require the target site to be created with the blank site definition. Since it also requires that both the source/target site are based on the same definition, this means you should select blank when creating the site in development too
2. From single file'/'From multiple files' options - the Wizard always exports with file compression enabled, so when exporting content over 25MB, files are split into several files at this threshold.
