  3. Click the drop down menu to the right hand side of the site you want to move or copy.
  4. Select Move or Copy depending on your need.

  7. Wait a minute for the pop-up window to refresh (or reload - the screen should briefly flash).
  8. Click OK
  9. Copying may take several minutes. You will receive a screen that indicates that files are copying or moving.
  10. When the copying or moving process is complete, open the destination site and check to confirm that your new files or sites have successfully relocated.
  11. NOTE: if you receive an error that says, "...this site cannot be copied or moved onto itself" this means you didn't wait for the pop-up window to refresh and the system does not know the new location you want to move or copy the site to. You'll need to repeat the process and wait for the pop-up window to refresh when you make your destination selection.
