Hi complete novice and not very technical.
Last week I closed down my ACT version 6 in the usual way, but then when I came to open it the next morning I was denied access and couldn't work out how to find it on my laptop. I visited a laptop repair centre and they found ACT on my system, but were unfamiliar with the programme so didn't know how to restore it.
When I opened ACT by searching from the start button I discovered that although my 460 plus contacts were there not all the fields appeared i.e.. no contact name, email, history or task lists. I tried to copy ACT but this hasn't worked as now I get an error message that says 'The database you are trying to open is not ACT! database. To use this database in ACT! you need to import the data by following the on screen instructions in the Import Wizard'. I'm reluctant to do this as I'm really not sure what I'm doing.
I now can't access anything meaningful. How can I restore ACT and all the data I had input?
