    Question

  • Dear Folks,

    An alternate workout for me is, I have exported and imported the site and its working fine with all data.

  • there are a few issues I'm running into with Sharepoint Online (Office365 E3)

    I noticed in Sharepoint Online Powershell there is no Export or Import Command. So I am stuck with saving a Site Collection as a template in order to clone the site so we can use the template as a sandbox....or to take backups...so we must include all Content to be backed up.

    With this being said...I can't save the site as a template because of this error...

    Sorry, something went wrong

    Error creating solution. The maximum total file size limit (52428800 bytes) has been exceeded.

    Technical Details

    Go Back to Site

    So MS is saying that the largest site collection template can only be 52MB....surely I'm missing something here...

    I can save the large backup template on a local hard drive...but I don't see this option anywhere.

    the sharepoint online powershell commands are missing export, import and backup....it looks like Sharepoint 2013 Server Powershell is far superior.
