I use Classic 12.05 and recently my HDD died. I have all the data files backed up to a zip disk from the in software backup utitlity but I can't seem to get them to load on the new install! I have no idea what to do here.

Can someone please post some instructions on how to restore with these backup files.

(From a previous post by me)

Just copy all the company folders under C:\PCA. They should look like this C:\PCA\XXYYDATA, ex. FIARDATA= Company-FI, Accounts Receivable-AR.

After you copy all the folders, just try to open a new company (it is important that it has the same two letter abbreviation). It will ask you for the basic info, like Name, Address, Phone, ect.

Then you open each one of the modules that you were using in this new company. When you do this it will tell you that there's already files in that module and prompt you to overwrite them (the default is "no"). You got to do this for each an every module that you were using.

Sit back and enjoy a work well done!!!:)
