I know my data is good but when I copied it from my work area the collection manager does not recognize it as valid data. What could be wrong?
Sometimes while coping using a drag and drop method your mouse may have been a bit off the mark when you dropped your data. Look for the occurence of another RCDATA01 directory under your top-level RCDATA01 directory. It might look like C:\mydata\RCDATA01\myinstid\RCDATA01\myinstid\myaggreg\00000516
You might have just dropped the RCDATA01 into a lower directory. Since the collection manager looks up and down the tree for valid ResCarta data formats it can be confused by multiple top level names.
