Moving mail folder between instances of PTB

Senario: I have 2 different instances of PTBs, PTB_1 for work and PTB_2 for private mail. I want to move a mail archive folder (not the "Archive" folder PTB creates) from PTB_1 to PTB_2. I already have a folder in PTB_1 called "ARKIV" (archive in Norwegian) and a subfolder called "Classes", which I want to move to PTB_2, but with the same file structure. Have tried copying the folders and classes + classes. msf files, but they are not recognised in PTB_2 when PTB_2 restarts. How do I make PTB_2 recognise the folders?

Problem solved - thanks!!

The trick of just creating folders with identical names and then copy the original folder(s) - in my case from my PTB_1 to PTB_2 - and then replacing the folder with the same name worked like a breeze!! Thanks again!
