Migrate Existing File Definitions to Expression Web 4

Screenshot sitedata folder in Expression Web 3.Each time I install a new version of Expression Web, I always have to re-enter all of the publishing information for each site. Wouldn’t it be nice if I could just copy them for one version to another. Now you can migrate existing file definitions  from version 3 to version 4. You will need  to copy  the SiteData directory (or just certain folders from that directory)

C:\Users\UserName\APPDATA\Microsoft\Expression\Web 3\SiteData

to the equivalent Web 4 location which for me is

%APPDATA%\Microsoft\Expression\Web 4\SiteData

I just copied the folder for one of my Expression Web 3 sites that I had not yet set up in Expression Web 4 and it works perfectly. Quite a time saver!
