Redirecting restored SharePoint 2001 workspace data to another workspace

Before redirecting the restore of SharePoint Portal workspace data, the SharePoint Portal Server software must be installed on the target server. If any of the folders in the original workspace do not exist in the destination workspace, they will be created during the restore.


When you restore SharePoint Portal workspace data, any documents that exist in the target location and that have the same name as the documents being restored may be overwritten, depending on the overwrite properties for the restore job.

To redirect restored workspace data to another workspace

  1. On the navigation bar, click the arrow next to Restore.

  2. Click New Restore Job.

  3. Navigate to and select the SharePoint Portal workspace data you want to restore.

  4. On the Properties pane, under Destination, click Microsoft SharePoint Redirection.

  5. Select the Redirect Microsoft SharePoint sets check box.

  6. Select Individual SharePoint sites, documents, lists, or items.

  7. Select Redirect to workspace or document library (Web Storage System-based only).

  8. In the Restore to server field, type the name of the SharePoint server to which you are restoring. Use the following format: \\servername.

  9. In the Restore to workspace or document library field, type the name of the workspace to which you are restoring. If you have not yet created the workspace, you must do so before starting the restore operation.

  10. Use the default logon account as indicated, or click Change to select a different one.

  11. On the Properties pane, select other job properties that might be appropriate for your environment.

  12. Start the restore job.
