I made regular backup of my bk6 files, on my C drive (normal or zip one), following the instructions in the manual. I never had to use it. Today, I trie to restore it on another computer that I have, on which an old database of bk6 was installed. It did not worked !

I also realize that all my pictures an media files are not copied with the backup.

Anyone to tell me how to proceed - how to backup up my bke6 database, including pictures and media files ?

Thank you very much

Lucie

When you did the backups, had you been checking the box to backup pictures? It's not checked by default, you have to select it each time.

When you did the restore, what failed? The entire backup failed, or just the pictures failed to be part of the restore?

I think I found out what the problem is. When I did a backup, the program did send the pictures files, and the txt and the media files, as I wanted it to, but it was put on the cd all mixed up - not in their respective file.

So, when I tried to restore it, the program could not find the files named "Txt", "Pictures" or "Medias" cause they weren't any !!!

very curious ...

I copied my text files to a 3.5 floopy (years ago) and when I tried to "restore" to the hard drive of a new computer, the text files didn't go. What did you do to retrieve the text files in your situation....or...what do I do to get my text files from the floppy to the hard drive?
