Changed PC - I now can not get into my Money file


A

Adam

Hi
I have at last invested in a new PC - all the data was already on a
removable HDD. I loaded the original MS Money 2005 CD on the new computer,
running XP and the data file, which has not been moved will not open, it is
saying : Firstly that it will convert the file... (why)
Then it says it is read only or I do not have permission to change it, or my
drive is write protected.
As all other files seem to be readable, including PST files I assume it is
something to do with permissions - even though I have it passworded with my
MS .NET password that supposedly allows it to be opened on other computers.
What do I do, there is over 5 years of household financial records on this
system - I do not want to loose them.

Thanks
Adam

Hi Adam,

Dozens of posts on same subject. Use Money to open the SAMPLE file,
and it will connect to the internet and download the 1105 update. THEN
open your own file.

You might want to think twice about MS.NET password protection. If MS drop
this facility you may be locked out of your data.

My advice is to use Cryptomite http://www.baxbex.com/cryptomite.html or
similar and carry your encrypted data on a USB memory stick.
