Save SharePoint List as template and create new one

SharePoint list (SPList) has grown up to immense size and started to decrease performance. To solve this, I decided to cut this SPList to pieces – to create archives and save items there by year.

I had to make three operations:

1.       Save SharePoint list as template without data
2.       Create lists from template with custom names
3.       Move items from one list to another

Moving items is a specific tool and there are many ways to move items. I will describe it a bit later. But now here are two script – how to save SPList as template and how to create a new one from template.
