ADF and ALF files dont transfer

I am moving a database from one computer to another. When I got to move the elements (.ALF, .ADF, .PAD), only the .PAD files transfers. The LF and ADF files don't transfer. When i try to, I get "Cannot copy Database: It is being used by another person or Program". Well, there is no other person or program using this file. As a result, I can't open my database on the new computer. When I try, I get the "database server  Connection error". All SQL servers are started. How do I get all the database files to transfer to the new computer so I can get going again?

 

Thanks,

The best way is to do a backup in ACT! of the database and a Restore As on the other computer. The SQL server has all connected ACT! databases open whether ACT! is open or not.
