Exporting a SharePoint list in SharePoint 2010

To export a list from a SharePoint site you can follow the steps below:

  • Ensure that the user account performing the process is a member of the farm administrator group.
  • In Central Administration, on the Home page, click Backup and Restore on the left hand menu.
  • On the Backup and Restore page, in the Granular Backup section, click on the Export a site or list option.
  • On the Site Or List Export page, select the appropriate web application, site collection and list that you want to export.
  • In the File location section enter the UNC path of the export folder. This should be a share on either the server or another network location.
  • If the file already exists and you want to overwrite this, then select the Overwrite existing file check box.
  • Select the Export full security check box if you want to export all the security and permissions settings with the select list or library.
  • Click on the Start Export button when you are happy with the selected options.
