Please keep in mind that there is no automatic functionality to create a new data room duplicated from the existing one.

You may download the documents from one data room and upload them to another one using a web interface or iDeals VDR Desktop application for Windows.

In case you have automatic document indexing enabled, please pay attention to each method's peculiarities to avoid double indexing in your new project.

If you only need to replicate the project folder structure (without uploaded documents), please refer to this article.


Using web application

  • Open your new project, and upload the downloaded archive.

  • Extract documents from the archive by right-clicking and choosing "Extract here". Delete the archive once done.

You can enable automatic document indexing in your old project as soon as the download is complete. It is enabled by default in a newly created data room.

Please keep in mind:

  • The indexing in your new project can differ from the original. You may easily reorder the folders by renaming them or drag&drop to the required position.

  • You may also leave the automatic indexing enabled in your old data room and download the documents. Then disable the automatic indexing in your new data room, so the documents are sorted according to their indexed names.

  • If you've already uploaded the documents with indices to a new data room and would like to keep the automatic indexing enabled, all documents will get double indices. In this case, you will need to remove the index part from the documents' names (by renaming) to avoid duplicated indexing. If you have a deep folder structure, please contact support@idealsvdr.com for further assistance with the elimination of double-indexing.
