I need to completely export/ all Alfresco sites and content maintaining UUID's for everything. Is there a way to do this?

I need to export everything to some sort of archive file (ACP, ZIP) so I can burn it to a DVD for off-site, long-term storage/archival.

Does Alfresco offer anything that can fully export sites and files (including their UID's) and then import them to create a restore point?  I've got multiple external systems using Alfresco as their file store so the UID's must be maintained.

Is a Backup of DB, Contentstore and Alfresco APP enough? Such a backup could be restored in a virtual machine.

To reimport special files back into your original repo, you can export them as ACP from the backup machine and reimport them with uuidBinding REPLACE_EXISTING...

Martin Ehe Do you know a better aprox. than ACPs ? When you have big repos, you should generate many ACP's and then to pray and import them. It seems quite tedious. For this task it would be very nice that Filesystem Bulk Import module was able to import sys-uuid metadata

Hi - yes the acp Export is only suitable for smaller amounts of content... I never tried Jayesh Prajapati‌s tool, but this sounds promising.

I used the Filesystem Bulk Export Tool, it was presented on Devcon. It is quite useful, for Bulk Export and Import in other environment. But the problem would be relating sys-uuids when importing.

So we should improve the Bulk Import :-)   Sounds like a good addon for the order of the bee tools
