1.1. Is it possible to move a workspace to a different folder?

In the 2009/2 release you can open the GUI. Select the workspace in the Workspace View and select 'All Tasks | Move Workspace'. You will then be asked to enter the folder where you want the workspace files to be moved into.

If you are using a previous version of PureCM then you will need to... 

If the workspace was created with the 'store database in home directory' check disabled then you can move the workspace by:

    Copy your old workspace folder to the new location (including the _purecm folder which contains the workspace database).
    Open the GUI.
    Delete the old workspace.
    Create a new workspace to the new location.
    You should get a warning that it is a multi-user workspace.
    Everything should now work as usual.

If the workspace was created with the 'store database in home directory' check enabled then you can move the workspace by:

    In the home directory (you can see this in the Options | General page) you should see the workspace database files named after the location of the workspace. Take a copy of these files. Open the GUI.
    Delete the old workspace.
    Create a new workspace to the new location (note that you can cancel
the update).
    In the home directory delete the new workspace database files (named
after the workspace path)
    In the home directory rename the old workspace database files to
reflect the new path
    Everything should now work as usual.
