    Default Importing large .tgz - nothing happens

    I exported some folders each folder in a single .tgz from a Zimbra account and am trying to import it using Zimbra Desktop into a Gmail folder.

    With some smaller folders (up to a few hundred MB) everything worked great.

    But I have two critical folders of ~3GB each and when I try to import then Zimbra Desktop says "Import Started" but then nothing seems to be happening. The mouse cursor does not change to busy like it does with the when the smaller ones are being successfully imported. I tried waiting 2-3 days and no emails have been imported.

    Any ideas please why a large .tgz is not importing or how I should debug this or maybe split up the file?

    Thanks!

    I'm having the same issue with ZD2 beta 2. I have a .tgz export from ZD that shows up as 2.13GB in Windows 7. No matter how long I let it sit there and do it's thing (8+ hours) it never does the import. Not even a partial import.

    I tried a fresh install of ZD2 beta 2 on on another Windows 7 machine using the same .tgz, and I get the same behavior when trying to import. This is super critical for me right now, as I need to get these emails imported into the ZCS server asap. The only place they exist right now is the .tgz file.

    Try exporting just the email then importing that into ZD.
