Hi Kay -
The PAF database can be fully recovered & transferred to your new hard drive *IF* you are able to access data on your old hard drive. Often, even with a hard-drive crash, one can access files on the drive with the old operating system DOS; if so, the files can simply be copied and then transferred to your new drive. If the old drive cannot be accessed with DOS, then it can still likely be accessed (by a pro) in hexadecimal form.
The PAF backup creates a .ZIP file. You can open this file from within PAF [FILE Menu --> click on "Restore."] You will be prompted to browse your system until you find the correct .zip file (which you say resides on a 3 1/2" floppy in the A-Drive?)
Hope this helps?
