The SharePoint Content Inventory generates a complete content inventory for a complete SharePoint farm or selected site collections. The content inventory is exported as an Excel file providing information about all sites, lists and libraries.
A complete and up-to-date Content Inventory provides the following benefits:
- Helps to improve the overall content quality by identifying stale and abandoned sites and lists
- Documents the site structure and allows to verify that the structure complies with the governance rules
- Allows better planning of content migration projects

Supported SharePoint versions: 2007 and 2010, both Foundation and Server
Required Excel version to view the inventory: Excel 2007 or 2010
