Importing projects into a workplace is useful if you want to move a project between installations of Metalogix. This operation connects Metalogix with the project folder that is generated when you connect to a site collection, farm, or tenant. It can also import collected data projects, google drives and backups.
1.Right Click in the Navigation pane and select 'Import'.
2.Pick 'Existing Projects into Workplace'.
3.Select the 'Browse' button next to 'Select root directory'.
4.Select the folder that you want to import the projects from.
5.Select the projects that you want to import. If you check the 'Copy Projects into Workplace' Metalogix will copy the projects from wherever they are into the current Metalogix workspace folder. Sometimes it makes sense to have a reference to an external project, such as when you have a Backup and sometimes it makes sense to copy the files into the new workplace so that you have all your projects in one place rather than linking back to the original location.
6.Your projects should now be imported in the Navigator pane.
