    I want to move Peachtree data from a local drive to a network drive.
    What is the process for this. I tried it already but Peachtree would
    not open. The network drive is a shared data drive on a server which
    the client PC was connected to.

    Then you must install Peachtree on the server, choosing to install the
    Server components only. You should probably then uninstall it from the
    workstation and reinstall it to the mapped drive where the data resides. Do
    not include the actual company data file folder in the path. For example, if
    you create the P drive, mapped to C:\program files\sage software\peachtree,
    then you would show the install data path as P:\Company.

    This will only work if you are using a Windows server. Peachtree no
    longer supports shared folders on Non-Windows servers.

    ELS had written this in response to :
    We did a similar move last year. Our data server is running xp. We first
    backed up our peachtree data from the old computer that was being used to
    store the data using the backup option that is integrated in Peachtree.
    Then we installed peachtree onto the server using the data server only
    option. Then I reinstalled Peachtree onto our workstations, mapped to the
    data server drive and then did a data restore to get our real data back up
    and running. Had no problems at all with the process even though all our
    other computers that use peachtree are using vista and the data server is
    xp. Obviously, all your computers should be in the same workgroup to
    make the mapping easy, but other than that, it should work with no major
