Money 2002 Restore on new laptop


I

ipaq

I have recently changed computers and am trying to restore a back up on my
previous computer to the new one.

I have tried a CD , I have tried to take a copy of the money file and put it
on my new laptop. But when I try to use it Money gives me a message that :

“The file is corrupted or not a money data file- money has tried to repair
it but has failed.†Can you please advise how I can sort this out

Hold on to that old computer until you get this sorted out.

From the CD, copy it to your My Documents folder. Right-click that
copy in Windows Explorer and choose Properties. Un-check the
Read-only box.

Then again right-click that copy in Windows Explorer and choose
Open. That should feed the file to Money.


If you still have a problem, what is the name of the file and how
large is it?

The name should be *.mbf or *.mny.
