Go to Macintosh HD/Users/Your username Folder/Documents, and drag Microsoft User Data Folder to desktop then copy the same folder from the backup drive to Documents, then open Entourage.
Just a clarification please. I am in my backup startup drive. If I go to my Documents folder and move the User Data Folder to the desktop it goes on the desktop but disappears from the Documents folder. Shouldn't i move it to the same folder on my main drive?
No, on your main drive you move the folder to the desktop to save it and then copy the backup folder to Documents on the Main drive.
To copy it
So as I understand what you are saying you want me to restart on my main drive and then copy from the backup to the desktop. Is that what you are saying/
No start up from your main drive and drag Microsoft User Data Folder to desktop then copy the same folder from the backup drive to Documents, then open Entourage.
I'm still in my backup and I'm copying that User Data folder to the main drive's desktop. Then I plan to restart on the main drive and move that folder from the desktop to the documents file. Do you think this will work? Thanks for your patience.
The reason I had you move the old one first is because they have the same name
Well I did what i said. And restarted in the main drive, moved the folder over to the document folder and started Encourage. It asked me which identity and when i clicked on my usual, it opened with all the folders, emails, just like old times.
So it‘s good?
Forgot to add, i have been a Mac user since '84. Had one of the first in California. But i am now 75 and even though things should be simpler, I find i need a little direction to the proper procedures. Thanks for being there. And the answer is "Yes, it does appear to be good." But before I accept this second payment i just want to check things out a little more. Thanks again, Ron
Yes don‘t throw out the old folder until you are sure. Good luck
My mother is also 75 and you are doing way better than her.
Great talking with you. Have a great Holiday!
