Problems to restore backup file


L

luis

I recently had a computer crash and the hard drive is gone...
Luckily (I thought) I had a old Money back up file that I hoped would get me
back up and running, but I could not restore this file because every time I
tried I got the message "Please insert the next backup disk (The disk
containing file "My Money Backup d2.mbf)"... But I saved the file in a memory
card, and I was never asked to input another card/disk, so this is the only
file I have... Now I have a backup file that won't work! Any solutions?
Thanks,

Luis

Unfortunately the first disk contains a file named *d1.mbf. So you
have disk two of two at best.

Are you sure the data cannot be read off of the old hard drive? You
or somebody else should try adding that drive as an extra drive (not
as the system drive) and see if you can copy your file(s) from
there.

Cal,

I tried that already... The disk is completely gone! Pictures of my baby,
and all...
Anyway, I was trying another way: I installed the MS money for pocket PC,
and I as trying to sincronize with it, and hopefully get the acoutn setup
data from it. Do you know if that can be done?
Now, today when trying to install the Money 2003 for pocket pc ( I have
Money 2003 in my desktop) I got the message: "it does not appear that you
have MS Money installed in your desktop..." ??? I do have it installed! how
can I make the installer recognize it???
Thanks,

Luis
