Restoring a course from a .zip backup
This is very similar to performing an "import," except instead of importing individual files, you will restore the entire contents of a course (except for student data) to a new course from a .zip file. With the upgrade to Moodle 2, you will need to use the Restore function to bring your content from Moodle 1.9 into a new Moodle 2 course, rather than importing. Once content is in your Moodle 2 course, then you will be able to import between courses or from semester to semester, as you have in the past in Moodle 1.9. Complete instructions for Restoring a Course are available for download as a PDF. Restoring a Course
