[QUOTE=gwoverton;2218237]Are you saying that I should not have backed up the files but I should have copied them to a cd. Back up compresses the files as it is I have used 23 disks to back up it will be twice that if I were to copy all of the files to a cd. Please respond[/QUOTE]
How big are those files??? When I mean backup I mean the saved data files you created and documents not the entire program folder. That is useless when you reformat your computer. Cause you will have to reinstall the program again and copying the old folder back will cause more problems then it fixes. Rather get the update to those software from the company and install those. Then just copy your saved data files and documents back into their corresponding folder and restart the program and see if it can see and open those files or run them. I would also add to that if one of those 23 goes bad in the process or you loose or break the media your up a creek. Making that many disc your risk factor goes way up for making a bad media.
