Finding and moving my database in ACT 6.0

I am very new. I have ACT 6.0 on one PC with about 100 records input.


I want to move ACT to a different machine.  I instakked ACT6.0 on the new machine, but had difficulty with a registration problem. It couldn't get an internet connection so the other option was to print and fax or mail. The fax # does not work. But suddenly ACT would open after I printed.


Now I want to find the database on my old maching, copy it to a flash drive and put it oin the new PC.


I have tried and found contacts.dbf and a bunch of other files, but the file I save to the flash drive seems empty.


I would appreciate some direction.


Thank you very much.

If you still have access to the other computer, you can simply backup the database and restore on the new computer.
