Jim why not do a DB backup and restore on the dup frontend
Duplicate the files you want

If you select a recording or video that is not present you get a 'can't open' dialog
every thing else 'just works'

You can repeat when you want to. (next time)


PS it is easy to redo (only) the hardware bits if you need to, but I don't bother - there is no hardware on my dup
