PAF RECOVERY AFTER HARD DRIVE CRASH
Posted by: KGRUENEICHCAREY (ID *****8810) Date: November 23, 2003 at 23:47:54

HELP! MY HARD DRIVE W/ OLD WINDOWS ME VERSION CRASHED. I HAVE NOW REPLACED W/ NEW DRIVE & WINDOWS XP HOME VERSION. I HAVE ALSO DOWNLOADED BLANK PAF PROGRAM 5.0 TO NEW DESKTOP.
1)COMPUTER CONSULTANT (NOT A GENEALOGIST) THINKS HE MIGHT BE ABLE TO USE NEW WINDOWS SYSTEM W/ OLD HARD DRIVE (VIA CABLE) TO ACCESS CONTENTS OF PROGRAMS.
DOES THIS WORK W/ THE PAF DATA?
2)DOES THE PAF INTERNAL "SAVE DATA/BACKUP" FUNCTION CREATE A GEDCOM FILE AUTOMATICALLY? I HAVE A 3-1/2" HARD DRIVE DISKETTE W/ ~ 1200 NAMES, BUT I CAN'T RETRIEVE ANY INFO FROM THIS DISK. OR MUST I RE-ENTER ALL DATA FROM PAPER NOTES?? (I HAD ~1900 NAMES WHEN DRIVE CRASHED).
ANY IDEAS, PEOPLE??
THANKS A LOT, B.C. (BEFORE COMPUTERS) KAY
