My computer crashed (Vista). Did save hard drive. Got new computer (windows 7 ,64bit).
I had carbonite back up. Did NOT back up paf files (as prompted), because I thought carbonite was my back up. Now I understand that ....it has the info.....not the link to connect it all properly together. Now I want download a new blank Paf 5 into new computer and retrieve info off of old hard drive into new hard drive and keep my proper links including the photos that were attached to each person. Is this possible? Or is it all scrambled?
Is there an easy way to solve my problem?
(the last time I did back up the Paf program - when promted - was about July, and additional info was added after which info is in carbonite )
