Easily Migrate Projects to Petra 4.0

Petra v4 works with projects in a

fundamentally different way than older

versions.

The migration tool upgrades older

projects to work with the latest version

of Petra.

All projects should have a good backup

before initiating project migration.

Performing a full repair, optimize, and

pack on the v3 project will speed up

migration.
