Is there a way to convert the blogger backups to XML format that Google is supporting in the import functionality now? Please advice on how to do that.

I think I heard from one of my users that that they were able to import a Blogger Backuped xml file into Blogger with their new import and it worked fine for them. Are you getting an error when you try it?

I give it a try myself and see what I can find out... It will likely be this weekend as I have to be careful when I work on this project to avoid IP issues with my job (sigh).

Are you restoring a single (one post per file) or combined (all posts in one file)?

Thanks for your reply. Finally it worked!
I think the issue was the file size. For more than 500 posts, it was timing out.

Thanks again!
