Copying Asset Storages

It is possible to copy a Storage as the basis for creating another Storage, for example if you want to use the same set of assets in the context of a larger set for a different department, work area or development phase.

Note: It is not possible to change the 'Content' of a Storage nor is it possible to change 'Status' of a 'Learning Center Library', 'Reference Data Library' or 'Source Code Library' Storage.
