Change database directory and now can't opened it!

Hi,

To reorganize my  disk path, I could like make copy of all the files in another directory.

Because I have a message when tyieng to make the copy I usefile unlocker "Unloker.exe", No problem to make the copy.

But now I cannot open the database!

 

Do someone has a solution to solve this big problem?

 

Best regards

Delete the PAD file and open using the ADB file.

Thanks for this answer.

 

I don't find ADB file!. I support you would write ADF!.

 

So I try: Delete PAD file, and open existing database .ADF, but have the error message   - I/O error(Descripteur non valide) detected during read at offset 0x000000001ee000 in file 'C:.............ADF'

 

If you have some solution I will parreciate.

Thanks, for you help.

 

The solution was to delete PAD file, restart the PC - otherwise ACT indicate the database already open when try to open with ADF file - ope Act with ADF fike.

 

Now it is Ok.
