Fei, Yes, your assessment of Archive is correct.
I was following the thread that once you have the application archived, you can more easily recreate the directory structure with the already-moved insets just by plopping the insets into your existing directory structure. Then drop the FM files into the same relative position and you're done. I've done it a score of times, at least, and it works fine, although there may be some gotchas in your environment that would preclude using it.
