I have a situation where I need to restore my database.
1. I stop the ACT SQL process and backup the ACT folder structure to a back up device.
2. I have 2 laptops - XP Pro with ACT 2010.
3. I backup ACT to the backup device from laptop 1.
4. Can I move the entire ACT folder structure to the identical folder location on laptop and open the DB as normal .... or
do I have to do something different to open it?

You probably want to set up sync to the laptop. See:
But, if you just want to move the database, see this ACT! Knowledge Base article -

The following is the solution that Tech Support suggested and worked for me:
Move the ACT file structure to the desired location.
Delete the PAD file.
File Open Database >> select file extension as ADF.
Select the ADF file >> this is the database file.
Answer the few questions.
