New Blog Template: possible to copy theme settings? Also, tags not copying

Hi,

I recently got New Blog Template and wanted to ask if there's a reason why my files don't copy over and also if there's a way to get theme settings to copy over as well. Right now the theme moves over fine and is activated but it seems as if the theme comes with stock options. As for the files, I check the blog.dir/id folder but it's empty. I did check another folder which I manually uploaded files and it exists so other site can hold files. Is there a way to debug to see if files are being copied?
