Help:Moving Database from Blown computer to new

My old laptop computer blew up (fried motherboard) HD is OK.  I need to move my Act! database to my new computer.  Simply copying doesn't work.  I had the same problem backing the database up, Act! gave me error messages and wouldn't back the database up.  Act! doesn't recognize there is a database, even though I can see it.  any ideas????

You would need both the ADF and ALF files and then try to open the database with the ADF file.

You'll also want to get the 'databasename-database files' folder.  It contains your layouts, attachments, templates, and other files.
