[Archivesspace_Users_Group] restoring backup copy of collection

That will usually work well enough. 

I’ve sometimes had problems — there were more problems with exports in earlier versions. 
If there is bad embedded markup in a note ( for example a missing end </p> tag ) AS will
export without complaint but it won’t import without fixing the markup. And, as I noted 
in another message earlier today, I’ve found some files where the manual export from the
browser works,  but the API export fails. (strange!) 

But I’ve only had failures for a small percentage, so it’s the first thing to try. 
If it exports but doesn’t import, try validating the XML and see what it flags.

I’d prefer not to restore the entire database from backup because I don’t want to wipe out the rest of that day or two’s worth of work. Would exporting the EAD from the backup instance and re-importing it on the production instance work, or is there an easier way to do it?
