Mauro,
this depends on how you specified the repository at BPA7 install time. Have you got any documentation of how it was done ?

mmm the repository, you mean the directory? I'm under win 7. If them there aren't in user folder, where them can be?

Hi Mauro,

Had your BPA system been set up to use XML data, Embedded database or an SQL server? If you used an SQL server, the data would still reside there, and you could select it by configuring the data store options. For the XML or embedded database options, the .XML or .VDB files would be located in:

Vista/Server 2008 and later
C:\ProgramData\Network Automation\AutoMate BPA Server\BPA Local database.vdb3
or
C:\ProgramData\Network Automation\AutoMate BPA Server\*.xml

XP/Server 2003
C:\ Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Network Automation\AutoMate BPA Server\BPA Local database.vdb3
or
C:\ Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Network Automation\AutoMate BPA Server\*.xml

Mauro,
at BPA7 install time, you must have chosen between "use an XML data store" or "use a database"

The default choice is for XML data store. Then the files (in BPA7/Win7) reside in the folder
c:\ ProgramData\Network Automation\Automate BPA Server.
Depending on your BPA7 version, you will find either multiple xml files, or -in BPA7.1.3- one single vdb3 file, which combines all xml's from previous versions..

Copying that folder from your old HD into your new system would hopefully do it, replacing the corresponding files that are created at BPA7 install.

In the help, there is a relevant section at
Installation/Backing Up and Restoring Data, which explains that.
