Exporting content from EPiServer 4

Vote:
 

Anyone have an idea how to go about to export content from an ancient EPiServer 4?

We're building a new system and parts of the old EPi 4 content needs to be reused. New system isn't EPi, so my initial thought was to poke around with the export files and perform some XSLT magix on those, and then import the "washed" data into the new system.

But it turns out the .epi4 files are not really friendly at all. The newer .epidata (introduced with EPi5 is totally open to read and extract from).

So how can I either a) crack the .epi4 file, or b) export content from EPi4 in a different/better/some way?

Turns out Fredrik Haglund has a nifty tool to decode .epi4 files. Works like a charm!

Great link Johan. Will save that one.

I'm really intrested in hearing roughly how you performed the entire process.
