[access-uk] :Transferring Emails to New Computer - result!

    Hi all,

Many thanks to Andrew Hodgson for giving me the vital clue on this one.

The problem was that I'd had Outlook Express running whilst I was coppying
the files across. I'd forgotten about that.

Having copied them across again, without Outlook Express running, I was able
to import the whole lot without any further problems.

Many thanks,

Cheers,

Terry

control of the files even though it is shut.  Try one of the following:

and copy them - without running Outlook Express.

have NTFS permissions set on the folders use administrator account.
