SharePoint Content Deployment Wizard is a tool for SharePoint that provides the means to deploy the following content.
1. site collections
2. webs
3. lists
4. folders
5. list items (including files)

Content is exported using the Content Migration API as a .cmp file

Usage notes
1. The tool must be installed locally on the server which hosts the site
2. Site URL - enter using format
3. Import web URL - enter using format

Import/Export characteristics
Since the Content Migration API is used, imports/exports have the following characteristics:
1. dependencies of selected content (e.g. referenced CSS files, master pages) are automatically included in the export - check 'Exclude dependencies of selected objects' to disable this
2. all required content types, columns etc. are automatically included in the export
3. in contrast to STSADM export, it is possible to retain GUIDs during deployment (where objects are not being reparented) - check 'Retain object IDs and locations' to enable this
4. no filesystem files (assemblies, SharePoint Solutions/Features etc.) are deployed - these must already be present on the target for the import to succeed)
5. the following content does not get captured by the Content Migration API - alerts, audit trail, change log history, recycle-bin items, workflow tasks/state

Reparenting of objects such as webs and lists is possible with the following usage on the import:
1. enter the URL for the target web in the 'Import web URL' textbox
2. ensure 'Retain object IDs and locations' is not checked

Please Note: All versions of this tool work with SharePoint 2010 though you must edit a file (one time) to do this.
