    I have been trying to migrate an old 3.7 site to a new host. Unfortunately it has been a nightmare as when trying to move data to azure i get errors, when trying to move data to MySql i get errors.

    Now my last resort is to recreate the web page from scratch with a MySql database. 

    The issue however is how do i actually move all the images. There appears to be no way to download any of them in the admin section. Ideally i would love a batch download. But even downloading one by one will do i guess.

    This whole thing has been a complete nightmare. It is so difficult to move sitefinity if the new host is not identical. One would think that it should be a matter of pressing a button to convert it to a different database format.

    Hi Andrew,

    There is an option to download your images from a Sitefinity 3.x, however the current implementation allows you to download the images only one by one. In order to access the download option, you need to view the images in list mode as in the attached screenshot.

    Also I would like to note that the version of Sitefinity you are using is quite old and has various limitations in regards to our latest version, Sitefinity 5.4. I would suggest you to consider migrating to Sitefinity 5.4, as it is pretty flexible, contains a lot of new features and allows to be extended a lot.

    Kind regards,
