    Hi Maria Jhiosa,

    copying large clients can take more days, weeks. System copy is the preferred method (wiki referred in the previous reply),

    if a whole system can be copied.

    If a single client has to be copied, please refer to the notes listed on the wiki

    https://wiki.scn.sap.com/wiki/x/WZR9Gg

    especially:

    differences between client export/import and client copy

    1537913 - Local & Remote copies, Client Export/Import and Client deletion

    performance related:

    I hope you can find answers to your questions.

    Best regards,

      Hi Jhiosa,

      System refresh duration is purely depend on your backup/restore time, even online backup works but restore time plays an important role.

      Once again coming to your initial query - What is your exact requirement? How many clients you have in your source system now? and how many in target? What is the backup tool that you are using and what is the size of database? If you explain all these things, then definitely you can get the best solution from this forum.

      Regards,
