    Transferring Atlas between PC's



    Dear all,

    I have used the old version of Atlas.ti on my old laptop to analyse my
    MA data. Now I have a new laptop on which I just installed the new
    version of Atlas 5.0 to analyse my PhD data. My PhD builds upon my MA.
    Now my question: how do I transfer the MA data and analysis from my old
    laptop to my new laptop into the new Atlas version???

    I would very much appreciate guidance on this matter!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Warm wishes,
    Petra

    You simply copy your old v4.2 HU and your data to the new laptop. On the new
    laptop you may either copy the data to the same location where they used to
    be on the old laptop. E.g. if they were located under C:\my files\my MA
    project\interviews, then you create this path on the new laptop and copy
    your data to this folder.

    The other option is to copy all data and the HU (this is the file with the
    extension hpr) into one folder. Even if the original path is not correct,
    the HU will be able to load the documents via an alternative route. This is
    not optimal, therefore see the suggestion below after saving the HU under
    v5.

    Then you open the old v4 HU in the new version and save it in the new
    version. It is then a v5 file with the file extension hpr5.

    Open the P-Docs Manager. In the colum origin, the original path that was
    used for assigning the documents is entered. In the last column (Location)
    it is indicated whether the docs could be loaded via the original path or
    via the alternative route (this is likely the case if you have copied all
    docs and the HU into one folder). Then please click on documents/data source
    managment/optimize path. ATLAS.ti will then change the absolute path to the
    HUPATH for all documents. Please refer to the manual for an explanation. It
    is explained in detail what the HUPATH is.

    An alternative is the TBPATH. Thus, you could also copy your documents to
    the folder that is set to be the TBPATH (can be individually set, you don't
    need to use the standard setting, which is under my files\Scientific
    Softwar\ATLASti\TextBank. Please also see the instructions in the manual on
    the TBPATH and the chapter: How ATLAS.ti handles documents.

    It sounds like a long explanation, but it is a matter of a few minutes to
    transfer your old project. I have justed listed 3 alternative ways of doing
    it. Hope this has not confused the issue.

    The easiest might be the option where you copy the HU and all data files
    into one folder.

    Susanne
