Redemption backup-I didn't see any stores or snapshots and ......

So I moved the files around trying to get Redemption to find them.  Now that I've read the directions (I know, I'm an idiot) I realized that I needed to repair the catalog.  I've tried to put all the folders back where they were originally but I doubt that I've succeeded since I still can't repair the catalog or find any stores or snapshots.  Can anyone tell me how to restore my backup...I'm getting pretty desparate.  thanks.

It's not your fault. The company should never have rushed this software to market to lock people's files up in their proprietary format without us being able to unlock it. This is poor project planning, plain and simple.

They need to release an upgrade that allows us to unlock the data from their proprietary format. Easy as that. We shouldn't have to suffer for their negligence.

Trying to pay for item what is redemsion code

A redemption code is a code used for discounts and promos that you can get from the website where you are buying. Sometimes, there are codes that the seller provides you to get a discount of the project. However, if you didn't receive any code then just leave it blank and proceed with the transaction.

Error vmware does not open Virtual Machines.localized/Microsoft Windows XP 1 1.vmwarevm/Microsoft Windows XP 1 1.vmx" is not a valid virtual machine configuration file

Thanks for contacting Fixya Support, I am glad to assist.

What appears to be the issue, is that your .vmx (Virtual Machine File extension) which is what how your Windows XP virtual machine terminal launches and works, may possibly be corrupted. I have been using VMWare Fusion for my Macs for nearly 3 years and it is not uncommon for this type of file to become corrupted and fail to launch for no apparent reason.

The usual way to correct this inability to launch issue, is if you can use the VMWare Fusion console to revert back to a previous Snapshot (saved backups or "snapshots" of your previous Windows XP virtual terminal sessions) of that Windows Virtual Machine terminal in order to recover the functionality of the vm.

If you are not familiar with what a Snapshot in VMWare is, then that would mean chances are you have not used that function and therefore you would have no snapshots of any previous Windows XP sessions to revert back to.

If this is the case, the what I can recommend you try, is to reinstall the VMWare Fusion 3 software to overwrite the current copy you have to see if this can help repair your affected Windows XP .vmx file.

If this process does not help, then you may unfortunately have to create a new Windows XP virtual terminal if you have no back ups or Snapshots of previous sessions.

Please feel free to reply back to this post if you have further questions.

I Help restore my files from my PHD120UHE-54.

Hello jensen1! I have checked what software your HDD uses and unfortunately its just the driver. So the best thing to do now will b e to get me a screen shot of the software that are using. Also Snap means take a snap of your current HDD and store means storing a backup of the current files. If you can just mail a high res pic of the software to I will have a look and suggest a solution.

Redemption Backup crashes

I have the same problem and have asked Acomdata several times how to fix it.  They say they'll get back within 3 days, but they never reply, Acomdata doesn't support their products.  Buy something else.
