Copying Documents to New Library and Saving Version History

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.
