Ok. He has a old Sharpe OZ 5600 organizer.
Not made anymore.
He wants to back up all his data on a program compatable
With Windows 10.
Is this doable?
Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

My apologies for the delay. There is the option of backing up the data stored on the organizer to a PC, but I will need to research further to see what is compatible. Please be patient and I will reply as soon as I can.

Do you have the original software and cable that came with the organizer?

I am sending the info to you.
Please let me know if you can read it.

From what I have found, about your only option is to maintain a computer with Windows 7 using what is called Windows XP virtual mode. Windows 10 does not support this and any workaround that I have read about, is pretty convoluted to say the least. I would definitely stick with something you know to work so you don't take the chance of losing any data. Please let me know if you have any further questions.
