    I would copy each file from the backup floppies to the same
    directory/folder.  This will give you an extra backup and will
    separate any problems of reading the floppy media from some other
    potential problem.  This is not the common way, and it is not
    usually necessary.  But especially if it is my only backup, I would
    consider the copy to hard disk step.


    The files will be named *d1.mbf, *d2.mbf, *d3.mbf and so on.

    In WE, double-click the *d1.mbf file.  That should launch Money and
    start the restore.  When Money prompts for the next diskette, click
    OK.

    If you are restoring directly from floppy diskette, you can insert
    the first floppy and double click the *d1.mbf file.  Change
    diskettes when prompted.

    You will have a chance to change the location or filename for where
    the restored data will go.  If this is a different computer, it is
    especially good to browse to a location.  The old location may not
    even exist.
