  2. Amol,
    I have created one web site on Dev server and I want to move that site to production server as Subsite of another site. Do you think is it possible without any issues ?


    1. Yes Shivaji, That's possible and it can be done without any issues. You can use either PowerShell or STSADM.

      Take the backup of the subsite, transfer it to appropriate server and restore it.

      let me know in case of any issues, thanks

  3. Check out Sharepoint server data recovery which covers all the recovered contents of attached documents and database tables, once damaged database is scanned. It shows the preview of contents to determine its efficacy. See at- http://www.recoverydeletedfiles.com/sharepoint-server-data-recovery.html


Your feedback is always appreciated. I will try to reply to your queries as soon as possible- Amol Ghuge
