Re: PAF 4.0 - Restore function

I have PAF4. and have just run into a problem with "RESTORE" function. I made a backup, 2 in fact, before importing a GEDCOM to it. Match & Merge did things I didn't care for so I deleted my database and tried to restore it from one the .bak files. It seems to freeze when I start from the .bak file, there is a message " reading compresssed file' in the RESTORE dialog box, A: lite is on but nothing is happening and nothing on the screen works. When Ctr;-Alt-delete get message that PAF is not responing.
I can't seem to restore my original file !!!!
can anyone help ?
