I have used PM 8.0 and now have two partitions, one active (C) for XP Pro and one (F) for data. Just what can I transfer to F? Can I transfer my Documents and settings? Can I transfer all my programs in the "Program Files DIR? If so can I transfer the prog file dir all at once or must I do progs separately? How do I tell "everyone" that all these files are now on F and not C? Finally I have a problem with PM itself. For a very new program it still believes it is in the dark ages. It will only let me record safety files on a floppy and not any other form of recordable drive. My notebook like many others coming on stream does not have a floppy and I see no need to get one. How can I deceive PM and record the safety files on another type of drive? So far my only method is to load PM onto wife's laptop (which has a floppy), record safety files onto a floppy, uninstall PM from my wife's laptop (short of hard disk space), copy files from her floppy over the home network to my nbotebook and then burn them to CD. I had hoped to finish before Christmas so i hope there is a better way. I know you all love helping out us dimwits so I am thanking you all in advance.
