QUESTION
Is it possible to copy documents from one library to another while preserving version history?
ANSWER
Copying documents directly while preserving version history is not possible in SharePoint. As a workaround, some other available options are:
  1. Call the author.dll "Move Document" using the Nintex Workflow Web Request action. For more information, see Nintex Workflow - Move Documents and Preserve Version History.
  2. Use 3rd party tools available from providers like Metalogix and Sharegate.
  3. Build a custom code solution.
