Archiving and Downloading Your Course

Important Notes: To conserve space on the Bb server, please delete the Archive .zip files, e.g. ArchiveFile_12345.201020_2011081012345.zip from the Bb Export/Archive Course page after the package has been downloaded.

After the package has been downloaded, do not unzip/open an Archive package or remove files from the package, otherwise the package will not import correctly. (Be patient. Depending on the size of the course, sometimes the package does not appear immediately and can take up to several hours after you receive the email alert.)
