    No need for a new cmdlet, just give us a -SkipContentDownload switch parameter for the Export-List cmdlet.

    Consider: Our hourly rate to the customer is $185 and it takes even me (an old hand at this) at least 15 minutes to manually generate each Export file. With 500 libraries to export, that equates to over 125 hours of labor at a customer cost of $23,125 – a sum that effectively kills the cost/benefit of going with ShareGate vs. the competitor.

    However, if the Export-List cmdlet didn’t have to export the terabytes of content to a file system (which the customer has no room for), then I could generate all 500 export files with simply a list of libraries and about 15 minutes worth of PowerShell.

    Hopefully, the IMMENSE difference this would make for such large migrations is now clear and perhaps a conversation could be started internally there at ShareGate (Gsoft) to at least consider it…
