Get citydesk files from one .cty to another

How do I get half a dozen folders full of files from my old Citydesk site into my new redesigned site without cutting and pasting them one by one?
And no I don't have Access!
Any thoughts?

Don't think it does it yet although that would be a very desirable feature. Moving articles between CTY would definitely be a feature request for CD3.

Fastest way I've found so far is to open the old and new .cty files side by side and control-c, control-v switching from one to other. I'll get on with doing this in the meantime.

I guess one of the main issues with copying files from one cty file to another is the magic name.    There's most likely a big difference between adding a file and replacing one due to the risk of messing up links in other files.

That said, it would be VERY nice to have some way of moving information that was a bit better than copy/paste.
