Error when copying a project in ALM

Question ID: 106047

Trying to make a copy of a project in ALM 11.52 but getting errors in the creation where it says "the system cannot find the file specified" when doing the actual writing.

The error will show my path, such as this C:\\repository\\qc\\MYDOMAIN\\APP_TEST\\ProjRep\\000\\000\\000\\001\\113 where APP_TEST is the project I am creating from another project. At the point of the error, it reverses the actions and the repository folder APP_TEST is removed.

I don't have any issues creating a new project. And I don't have any issues making copies from other projects. The one project that I need a copy of always errors out during creation is named Oexpress_2_02. I have run a verify and a repair on this project. Nothing found to fix.

Also worth mentioning is this project has mostly been cleaned out, so it is primarily just made up of requirements, tests, and some test resources. No custom workflow in the mix either. Any suggestions on how to get a copy to finish?

As you mention that the project is small, have you considered trying to export the project to a QCP file and then generating a new project from the QCP? Without more information, it is hard to try to pinpoint the issue on why the copy from your source project is failing out. The QCP route could just save you time and get around your issue with the source project.

Will try QCP route. Did not even think of that route. Something is amiss with this project so a new QCP copy would be just as ideal.
