Suggestions Please:  Clone Vault - Copy Partial Archive?

Hi all,


PDM Pro 2016 SP5.  I'm finishing up creating a test copy of an existing production vault per "S-070753".  I'm just about to do the restore from a full backup from the Prod server to my lower level server.  The Dev/Test servers are completely separate from the production servers and I have both a db and archive server for this lower level environment.


The Production Archive is significant and I don't want to copy the full archive from my prod server to the dev server due to time/cost and I don't need the whole thing.


What is the best/easiest/fastest (all that good stuff) to get a partial copy of the prod archive into the vault on the clone Dev/Test? I want at least one significant assembly and maybe a few drawings from Prod onto Dev/Test for some performance testing (the Dev/Test is on AWS cloud.)


What suggestions to get a full assembly from Prod to Dev/Text that I can use for check-out & check-in performance testing from SolidWorks?


Thank you,
