    Ive had Gopher for awhile now and really like it. What I am having problems with is backing up the database.

    I can save the data without any problem onto my hard drive. I was told I should then copy the zip file onto a cd. I did this without problem.

    The problem I have is getting the info that has been copied on the cd back to my hard drive so that I can then restore my database.

    Last summer my computer crashed and I was unable to restore my database with the cd's I had made. I would really appreciate any help with this since I am not so sharp on computers.:dizzy:

    I've never had any problem with it. I've always backed mine up on a usb chip. Although there shouldn't be any difference.

    Can't you right click on the file and select "copy" and then tell it to go to your "C" drive. I have Groundskeeper Pro and have copied to disk, but not the other way around. I have considered an external hard drive or USB memory for this purpose and back it up as I input info.

    Thanks for the input. I went to Office Depot and bought a USB drive. I tried it out and it works like a charm... Thanks again for helping out this slllooooww learner!:cool2:
