Exporting Microsoft SharePoint Data

Veeam Explorer for Microsoft SharePoint allows you to export SharePoint document libraries and lists from backups created by Veeam Backup & Replication.

The exported content will be saved as a set of XML files and can be imported to another SharePoint database using PowerShell cmdlets. For more information, see Importing Microsoft SharePoint Data.

To export SharePoint data, do the following:

  1. In the navigation pane, select a library or a list that you want to export.
  2. Do one of the following:
  • On the Library tab, click Export Library on the ribbon.
  • Right-click a library and select Export library.
  • On the List tab, click Export List on the ribbon.
  • Right-click a list and select Export list.
  1. Specify the output directory and click OK.


You cannot export an empty folder, an empty list and an individual list item.
