Thanks! Did that this morning and apart from a little bit of data cleanup afterward, it worked as expected.  -k

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.

If a resource in ArchivesSpace gets inadvertently deleted, and I have a relatively recent backup copy of the database running on a test server from which I could restore it, what would be the easiest way to restore just that resource? 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?
