Micrsosoft Money backup file RRS feed

  • Question

  • My backup file was write protected, but after removing check box, I still get the error message and can't restore the file.  I downloaded from one computer and wish to use with another computer.  Ideas?

  • I see Ken assumed you are talking about Money Restore, not WHS restore. Maybe so.

    What error message are you getting and in what, exact, context? (That ALWAYS HELPS answer questions about error messages.)

    When restoring a Money file, it will ask to put it where it originally came from. If, say, it was backed up on a WinXP machine and you are restoring on a Win7 machine, where it came from likely doesn't exist (typically something like c:\documents and settings\yourusername\documents\...) and you will need to tell it to put it somewhere else (typically something like c:\users\yourusername\documents).
