XML import of Jira

Hi Guys

is it a pre-requisite to have attachments folders in place before performing a complete restore from backup?

I know it is a pre-requisite when doing project import.

I believe that Timothy is right, every set of folders will be created automatically


It's not pre-requisite, the only trouble is that you won't have any attachments in their respective issues. If I'm correct when you set the folder you will have to restart the Jira instance to changes take effect.

thanks everyone for your responses..
