Export SharePoint Solution (wsp) file


In many cases and before we deploy any new changes to SharePoint, we would like to take a backup of existing solution for rollback scenarios.

To export or save the WSP file from SharePoint, you can use the below Power Shell script

$farm = Get-SPFarm
$file = $farm.Solutions.Item("MyFirstSP.wsp").SolutionFile
$file.SaveAs("c:\MyFirstSP.wsp")
