    My wife's computer (WIN2K) needed to have a new OS so we went with XP Pro. However she didn't get her addresses off before the change of OS. We both have Acronis and external HD's. I'm still running WIN2K on mine. Is there a way to move her external HD to my PC and retreive her email addresses ?
    We both have the same brand of external HD's (Fantom Drives).

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Chris

    What version and build of True Image? If you now have True Image installed again on her computer, just use it to mount the Backup Image that is on her external drive and see if you can extract the addresses that way. What email software did she use?

    It doesn't matter what operating system you have on a computer as long as you have a version of TI that matches or is newer than the version used to create the backup images of another or the same comptuer.

    Simply mount or explore the backup image on the external drive and copy the desired files out to a folder on that computer. If this isn't the computer where you want to use those files, copy them to that computer via a CD, a flash drive, over the network, etc.

    The great feature of TI images is that they can be mounted/explored on any computer with a compatible version of TI, so the data is always available for recovery.
