Importing and exporting content

Question asked by loring on Sep 29, 2009
I exported the complete repository in Company Home, selecting Complete Repository in the Export From section and checking Include Children.

Now I'm importing the spaces backup into the Company Home space of another instance of Alfresco 2.1. (This is in Windows XP SP 2, 1.73 GHz, 2 GB RAM.)

The spaces.acp file is a little over 1GB, and the import has been running for 24 hours. I gauged the time by looking at the timestamp of the Alfresco  log, which has been logging messages such as:

/*C1*/SET AUTOCOMMIT FALSE
SET AUTOCOMMIT TRUE
/*C2*/SET AUTOCOMMIT FALSE
SET AUTOMCOMMIT TRUE
/*C3*/….
and so on.

Should the import take this long? Did I do the export incorrectly?

I'm following the directions at http://wiki.alfresco.com/wiki/Export_and_Import#Export_.26_Import_Foundation_APIs.
