Hello Tom, T> thank you for your assistance. When you refer to the tbk file that's the backup files, right? Yes, the TBK file is the Bat backup file. To prepare for moving, I would first go to the Folder Maintenance Center and run everything. That will compress your files and to hopefully assure that everything is aligned. Then I would run a new full backup just to use for the transfer rather than relying on your existing weekly backup.
T> Will that include also my templates? Yes, your TBK backup should include your templates, account information, address book, everything. Just make sure that you have checked all the boxes including global for the backup. T> Do you think one or the other method is safer? I think transferring via the TBK backup is safer and cleaner . . . when it works (it usually does). Running the Maintenance Center first should help insure this. If it doesn't work, it is probably because of corruptions in your files that weren't fixed by running Maintenance. Then Peter's method of copying the data directory over will work, quite probably bringing the file corruptions over. Remember, you still have the original data files and, probably/hopefully, a normal system backup of the same as insurance. Hope this helps. -- Best regards, Richard mailto:the...@newmangroup.com ======================================= Using The Bat! v22.214.171.124 (BETA) (64 bit) on Windows 10 ________________________________________________ Current version is 8.0.18 | 'Using TBUDL' information: http://www.silverstones.com/thebat/TBUDLInfo.html
