It sounds like you have done at least part of the import successfully -
otherwise you would not be able to see the job history. You would not
normally see the ".phenix" folder in the Mac Finder even if it is present,
because all file/folder names starting with "." are hidden.  However, if
you copy over the entire folder - not just a selection of its contents -
this should have been copied along with everything else.

To figure out what is breaking I need to see exactly the error messages it
produces, with the original directory paths explicitly stated.  Could you
please send me these off-list?
