Moving VersionRecall to new server

We have moved our source code to a new server and I'm trying to figure out how to move our existing VersionRecall repository from the old server to the new one. Can someone provide the steps to do this? I have VersionRecall installed on the new server.

Thanks, Steve

From the Ribbon click on Repository Tab
Use Move Repository menu item

And this is from Help:

Repository Tab
There are options on the Repository tab you can use to manage your repositories. They are found on the left menu. We’ll discuss them one at a time next.

· Import Repository… – If you want to import all files and folders from a repository to which you have not been previously connected, this will copy all files to your local drive and connect you to the selected repository.

· Move Repository – Should you decide that you want your repository in another location this will move it for you. It will move all the files with it so if you’ve got a large repository it can take some time to complete this operation. Also, this works on the currently open repository so if you open VersionRecall you have to go to the Repository tab and open a repository, then go back to the Repository tab and click Move Repository. Then choose the new location you would like for the repository. This option doesn’t have any effect on the folder being monitored, only the target.

· Copy Repository – This option copies the repository files to a new location.

Please note that you should not keep your code and the repository on the same machine. VersionRecall was designed to be run on client machines with sandboxed code and a repository shared across a network. Keeping all on the same machine will not alleviate data loss when hardware fails.
