Hi Jonathan, Ah, great point -- I hadn't thought about that re: mounting the old Data.fs root vs. non-root. I'll give that a try right away -- that could be a quick and simple fix. Great thinking!
One thing I can say right off is that this difference (i.e., root-mounted vs. non-root-mounted) did *not* matter when migrating from one Zope 2.9 installation to another Zope 2.9 installation. That was something I've had to do along the way here and worked without a hitch. Let's see what happen, though. I'll try it later today and report back. Thanks again!
