Hi folks, I am in a bind. I have had my computer upgraded and of course the hard disc was erased. But not before I had two sets of backup discs of my PAF 4 program, which I had been religiously doing.
Now when I try to restore the data into a fresh PAF4 program from the backup discs, the program stops reading and compressing at disc 2 and the restoration is not finished. The file ext. on disc 1 is .bak and on disc 2 is .boo - is this causing the computer to not be able to finish? I have never had to do a restore so I don't know whether these discs really worked. I am quite concerned that the backups may be corrupted or something is haywire.
I need help with this. I would appreciate any suggestions. I realize now that I should have made a gedcom of the files as well as I believe this would be more reliable?
