I had hoped to copy my project to an external drive. I go to File > ... I only get the option of copying the sample project. I also tried to drag and drop the project to the external drive, but NVivo won't open it. These are various attempts to speed up the very, very slow process of opening, saving, etc.

Currently NVivo 11 for Mac does not allow for creating a copy of a project from within the software, you would need to make a copy externally using Finder.

In regards to your problem opening the file from the external drive, you may be receiving an error if the external drive uses a filesystem that NVivo cannot read. The following FAQ link has more information this:


Hope this helps.
