Hi @Ysquare ,
You should definitely check REST API, where you can export all datasets (and maybe their sources).
If you want to take advantage of these APIs you should be comfortable with some programing or scripting language. Nevertheless getting basic informations like datasets can be done easily with power shell.

Check following links:

If you won't find way of exporting sources here in the list, it's possible it is not possible yet.
