I reached out to Sharon Horton with our BPC team and she offered the following guidance:
"If clauses (or folders) have already been exported/imported once, the clauses in the production system are protected from overlay in the import. So, if you export by folder, each new folder should export and import as expected. If you have new clauses that belong in the same folder as clauses that have already been exported, drag those clauses to a new folder, export that folder, import the folder then drag the clauses to the appropriate folder."

Thank you for this information. I was able to export my folder, as long as I don't have any folder with the same name in the clause library. So renaming in a different one, or just with a new name is working fine.
Thank you for that.
However, I still have a question. The folder are imported without problem, but it seems the clause are not visible before some times. (Made an import, didn't saw any clause and went for my lunch break. The clause was available when I came back)
There was only one clause in this folder, so I have a concern ifit also happens for bigger folder.
Also, I'm pretty sure that the clause is inside somewhere as, even if I can't see it, I can't delete the folder (as it consider that it have something inside)
Does it ring a bell for you? Or am I crazy?
P.S : For one clause, it seems to take around 45 min, more or less. I will try if it's the same with more clauses.

I shared your question with Sharon and she provided the following guidance:
"Sometimes the indexing algorithm runs for a while – usually a couple of minutes at worst. If there are a lot of clauses, it can take a while for all of the indexing to take place."
So it's happens for other and I'm not crazy. Good.
Thank you very much, you just save us a lot of work !
Have a nice day.
