View Full Version : DAT Files

03-15-2004, 08:20 AM
A pc of mine crashed and I need to take my old files off that drive, however it's very close to death. I was instructed to copy all of the individual files for the company and save them on a disk.

I tried putting those files on my new pc, however it's telling me this is not a valid company, when I go and try and open it up on my pc.

Am I supposed to change anything in the properties of the files? One company I copied works fine..but this 2nd one just won't open.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Uncheck read only on the properties of the dat files and the version.txt file.

if its not a read only problem, since one company worked, list the files that copied to your new hard drive in this forum

If the version.txt is damaged, read only or a later version you will sometimes get this error message.
