Change User

Change User

Now, pull down the System menu again, and select Clone Library:


You'll be prompted for a server address. If you have an ENVY server setup, use that - we'll be using File I/O, so we'll leave it blank:

Repository Address

Next we'll get prompted for the file and directory to use. Do not select the current repository!

Repository Name

This may take awhile, depending on how large your repository is. Select 16GB as the size when prompted, and let it run. When it completes, you'll see a message in the Transcript. To show that it's a full clone, let's reconnect to the new repository:
