[ZDP] BackTalk to Document The Zope Book (2.5 Edition)/Using Basic Zope Objects

A comment to the paragraph below was recently added via http://www.zope.org/Documentation/Books/ZopeBook/current/BasicObject.stx#2-10
Folders are the building blocks of Zope. The purpose of a folder is to
*contain* other objects, and to *organize* objects by separating them
into different groups.

Each time we create an object such as a folder, Zope saves everything in its database in the file Data.fs.
Am I correct? Thanks.

So are you saying that to "copy" my Zope setup to another box I could simply copy the Data.fs file? Could you
explain the function of Data.fs.in, Data.fs.lock and Data.fs.tmp?
Data.fs contains a lot of binary content. Is there a way to "recover" it if Zope becomes unusable?

you'd at least be pretty close. worked for me once. dunno about .in, .lock, .tmp however. i guess Data.fs is
more or less what you get if you cpickle your zope tree.

If this is what you're trying to do, you're much safer using "export". It's much more likely to work.
