  • Hi,

    Create a workflow for List Template gallery that whenever a template is added save it in local drive and delete the same from list template gallery.


    Thanks, Rahul Rashu

  • Saving a list as a list template has a 10/20mb content limit and it'll only be usable within another similar version of SharePoint.  Templates are really designed for ease od deployment and saving templates, not content.

    If you want to consider archiving data, you might consider regular exports of your list to an Excel Sheet and store those within the local drives.
