Exporting a Change Set to the File System

Exporting a Change Set to the File System

To export a change set from the source instance to the file system, execute the following command from the data sync tool directory:

synctool -e -p <changeset_guid> -r <export_dir>


  • <changeset_guid> is the GUID of the change set data files you want to export.
  • <export_dir> is the directory where the change set data files will be created. Put quotes around the directory if it contains spaces.

For example:

synctool -e -p F4D3310C-2AC8-20AA-6B5F-693-E49EF753D -r .\csdata

After this is done, the exported data needs to be Importing a Change Set from the File System.
