What folder am I supposed to zip up if I want to import my jenkins installation to Bamboo?


I am using the Jenkins-Bamboo Importer wizard for the first time and I'm having problems uploading the zipped up jenkins home folder to it. I zipped it up and tried to upload it to the importer but it vastly exceeds the file upload limit. I have a large number of jobs running. Should I just exclude that folder?
