Why would you want to do this by export/import?

Think in more general terms. Suppose your old computer died and you 
obtained a new one. Luckily you made backups of your all your data (you 
have a copy of your entire data directory (file folder) ). You would do 
a "restore from backup" operation copying that folder to your new 
computer from the backup. So what you might want to ask instead is "how 
do I make a backup?" (of the folder/directory in which this data 
resides) and "how do I restore from backup?" Note that these are more 
general questions than "how do I do this for GnuCash data?". The only 
part of this that is specific to Gnucash is if you are unable to 
discover where GnuCash puts the data (if you allowed that to be some 
default location instead of specifying where you wanted the data to be).
