Transferring database between 2 computers (Act 2008)

I have an act2008 database on a laptop that I'd like to transfer to my desktop PC.
 
Can anybody please tell me which files I need to copy over assuming the database is named 'corona'.
 
I can find:
'ADF' file - corona.adf
'ALF' file - corona.alf
'PAD' file - corona.pad
 
Are there any others I need?
 
TIA

Do a backup in ACT! (File | Backup) and move the backup file to the other computer and do a Restore As (File | Restore | Database | Restore As). That way you are sure to get all the files.

You might also look at sync to have the data on both and update each other with the changes as per this ACT! Knowledge Base article - http://tinyurl.com/4ha2cj
