Hi Harry,

ok that's an option. But in the near future I have to make up to 300 
copies of an "master" typo3 site. And everytime doing these steps is not 
the best solution.
It would be interesting why the mapping is lost at all. Nothing is 
changed during the copying process. Maybe it is because of the new 
timestamps the files get. So TV recognises them as changed. But normally 
then should the mapping be OK then as it is when you edit the template 
file on an existing site. Nothing happens. No mapping lost and of course 
the changes have no effect until "update mapping".

It is a strange behaviour which I hope someone can explain and solve for 
such number of copies in the future.
