SharePoint content management company MetaVis on Monday made available MetaVis Migrator for SharePoint, a tool that will enable organizations to copy content between SharePoint servers and file systems, and keep the metadata associated with that content.

Migrator for SharePoint lets organizations copy sites, lists, libraries and more while retaining content types, column values and version histories, according to the company. Further, users can assign content types and column values to content being imported into a SharePoint library from a file system, and also can change the types and values for multiple selected documents or list items.

The tool does not require the installation of components or agents on the SharePoint server, the company said.

“Today, many companies are looking to reorganize and migrate content that is in disparate SharePoint repositories into one central repository for improved manageability and search,” said MetaVis CEO and cofounder Steven Pogrebivsky.

“MetaVis Migrator simplifies the entire process by using a familiar Windows Explorer interface, allowing users to drag and drop items into the new SharePoint system. This ultimately reduces the costs, time and risk with content migration.”
