    @Glenn Maxwell
    Which version of SharePoint are you using? What types of data do you want to copy from a site to another site?

    Here’re some methods for you to copy data:
    1.Save list/library as template.
    Manage list templates

    2.Save site as template.
    Save, download, and upload a SharePoint site as a template

    3.PowerShell.
    SharePoint Online: Copy files between site collections using PowerShell
    SharePoint Online: Copy list or document library to another site using PnP PowerShell
    Copy list items from one site to another with versions using PowerShell

    4.ShareGate.

    5.Move to/Copy to action in the SharePoint Online.

    if you use Sharepoint on-prem and want to copy whole site collection you may use Backup-SPSite/Restore-SPSite cmdlets. If you want to copy only specific sub site see Export-SPWeb/Import-SPWeb. Note that source and target Sharepoint farms should have the same patch level - otherwise import won't work. There are hacks which allow to do that (see e.g. How to restore site collection from higher Sharepoint version) - but there is no guarantee that it will work in all scenarios.
