Backup file won't restore.
Posted by: Florence Wheat (ID *****7949) Date: December 07, 2009 at 16:26:02

For years I have backed up my PAF5 files to floppy discs. This week I had an occasion to need to use the RESTORE function. I received the message "problem reading the back up file" So I backed up it up to a new flash drive. There was no problem backing it up but again the problem of not being able to use the restore function. I have about 5 thousand names on the file and I am very nervous now that I cannot be sure I have a readable back up. Can anyone help me?
Thanks,
Florence
