  2. To export the space, either:
    • Click the Administration Console icon, and then click Export, or
    • Click View Details, and in the Actions list, click Export
  3. In Package Name, specify a name for the file.
  4. Choose Click here to select the destination.
  5. Navigate the spaces to select a destination space for your file.
  6. Select the Current space option.
  7. Check at least one of the boxes for Include Children and Include this Space.

    Children means everything that you see in the Browse Spaces and Content Items panes.

  8. Optionally, check Run export in background.
  9. Click OK.
  10. Click Close.

    Browse to the space that you specified as the destination to see the .acp export file.
