31.2 Exporting an Archived Folder Structure

To export a folder hierarchy as an archive:

  1. Log in to the Content Server instance as an administrator.

  2. Choose Administration, then Folder Configuration.

  3. Click Export Archive.

  4. In the File Download window, click Save.

  5. Navigate to the directory where you want to save the folder archive file.

  6. Specify a new file name so that you can easily identify the archive file (for example, 041127_CollectionArchive).

    Note:

    In the Windows operating system, if you leave the file type as Text Document, a .txt extension will be appended to the file name (for example, CollectionArchive.hda.txt). To save the file with just the .hda extension, select the All Files file type.

  7. Click Save. The folder hierarchy is exported to the specified file.

    Note:

    Depending on the size of the folder hierarchy that is being exported as an archive file, the default heap size value for the JVM may not be adequate. If memory errors are issued during the export procedure, the heap size may need to be increased

31.3 Importing an Archived Folder Structure

To import an archived folder structure:

Caution:

This procedure removes all current folders and replaces them with the imported folder hierarchy. Typically, you should perform this procedure only on a Content Server instance that has no content items in the repository.

  1. Log in to the Content Server instance as an administrator.

  2. Choose Administration, then Folder Configuration.

  3. Click Browse and navigate to the archive file you want to import.

  4. Click Open. The path and file name appear in the field.

  5. Click Import Archive.

  6. Click OK. The archived folder is imported and re-created.
