STSADM Import Export Top Tip!!

I’ve noticed when performing an STSADM Import / Export, by default these routines do not include draft (unapproved) content in the archive files that get created.
After panicking slightly, I discovered that apparently this is not a bug and is by design. If there are documents which are not a published major version or draft copies, they will not be backed up unless you use the -versions 4 switch during the export.
It’s likely that in almost all cases we will want to use this switch to ensure all content is migrated. I’ll make a note in my blog!
