Migration of Very Large Classic Google Sites to New Google Sites
1
Respected Sir/Madam,
I have a very large classic Google Site and the migration tool which is made available to us by Google unable to covert it to the New Google Sites.
Now is it possible to have the editing right to the Classic Google Site (presently, it is disable from Google end), so that I can manually copy the content (by omitting the Google AdSense advertisement) and post it in a new Blogger Blog site. When I used to copy from the view mode along with the content, the code of Google AdSense advertisement also used to get copied and it create a problem to delete it manually.
Looking desperately for a solution.

I can second  https://websitedownloader.io/  It seems to collect your site pages, then you have to pay to get collected pages to download. 
As mentioned I haven't used it so I didn't know, sorry.
I did find that some of my links to PDF documents stored on Goggle drive didn't work. I haven't sorted out the reason for this.
Well a file in Drive is not on your site so that's to be expected as it's only downloading your site.  Httrack has the option to mirror everything  but even then it may not download items from Drive as they aren't standard links to download.

I have used httrack on my computer to get a copy of your site: if you want a copy let me know and I'll share it with you securely.

Google will not restore editing to your site your best course of action is to take a copy of your site through Google takeout

Dear Steegle,
Thank you for the information. However, when I take a Google Takeout instead of my 1500+ pages only 442 pages were there. There might be a problem with the takeout too. I am looking for any other suitable solution that can work for me.

Can you provide a screenshot demonstrating your issue please?

I don't have a site that large for me to export using Takeout but that's fairly serious if it doesn't work: are you happy to add me as an owner so I can try a takeout at my end?

If you want to use third-party tools there's software you can install to your computer, https://www.httrack.com/ (which I've used before) or there's https://websitedownloader.io/ which is browser based (I've not used that before).

I can second  https://websitedownloader.io/  It seems to collect your site pages, then you have to pay to get collected pages to download.  I was desperate. Httrack would have been complicated for me to install and I was in a rush. On my mac, it requires the Linux tool chain to be installed which I didn't want to do.

The pages look correct. I had to search around for the index html to invoke my website on my local disk.  I did find that some of my links to PDF documents stored on Goggle drive didn't work. I haven't sorted out the reason for this. The links were on a level two page. Links to a youtube video did work.  WebSiteDownload did present images I had on my site correctly.

The process was a little bit slow. I may have 200 pages.

Would be helpful to me to post back on your progress.

True, but links to youtube videos worked. Not a big deal now that you explained what may have happened.

Thanks.  Good to know.

??? I haven't posted a link to my site.  Did you mean the original poster?  Is there a way of searching for my sites? 

Thanks for your input.  Hope, you didn't mind my interruption.

I was working on the assumption there was only one person on the thread.
