Started migrating whole website to SharePoint host!

Test Olson Mains Distribution Units

My original 'free for life' website was provided by Microsoft on Windows Live Spaces together with my domain.  This worked really well and provided good website statistics.

In March 2012 Microsoft gave notice that the website would close and migration to a paid for site on Office 365 was required.  Thanks a bunch Microsoft!

Stupidly I did this, just manually migrating 163 pages took many hours of work.  The new SharePoint website was not as flexible, particularly for images and statistics were no longer provided.

Test 3rd HP 5342A Microwave Frequency Meter

Started having problems editing website pages and images.  Microsoft support recommended using IE11 instead of Edge!  Problem not resolved.  Advised by the way that Microsoft is closing SharePoint websites from March 2017!  Not providing any help to automate the process either.  Thanks again Microsoft!

Manually backed up the whole website to my hard drive using HTTrack.com 175 pages and 1042 images 55MB.

Re-built the website using OpenElement web authoring software so everything is on my PC and under my control.  Hosting is by www.1and1.co.uk
Both are providing an excellent service.
