How to Extract the prestage files

ExtractContent.exe utility  It will be located in the tools folder in the DP install directory, Example:- “c:\SMS_DP$\sms\Tools\ExtractContent.exe”


As you can see from the image above, the basic argument we want to give the ExtractContent.exe tool is the /P command to point it at our folder of prestage packages.  A nice feature to note is that we can point this at either an individual “.pkgx” file or an entire folder of them,

Run ExtractContent.exe /P:c:\prestage\sccmclient.Pkgx /f” to extract the content  into the content library.  The output isn’t very verbose, but you can monitor the “PrestageContent.log” in the log folder of the DP install directory while the command is running.

Once everything is complete and you have reviewed the “PrestageContent.log” file, you can delete the folder containing all of your “.pkgx” files, as they are no longer needed.
