Microsoft Access database

I just transferred my old database to my new pc by saving the folder the database was in (front and backend) onto disk. I then reformatted the old pc so everything is gone.

I am trying to open my database on my new pc. It opens but then comes up with: '\\DESKTOPPC\DesktopPC\Database\Toby3\Tonys_work_be.mdb' is not a valid path. Make sure that the path name is spelled correctly and that you are connected to the server on which the file resides.

My new computers main drive is I. Unfortunately I am confused as there is no drive letter in the error, and there are 2 x \\?

Can someone please help urgently? My husband desperately needs his database back :(

Thanks
Toby3

    Many thanks for your help. Well when I typed the above I had tried re-linking the tables but it didnt work as it was still trying to find the non-existent network folder. Unfortunately I failed to see the bottom tickbox "Always prompt for a new location"!!!!

    I ticked that relinked the backend (which was on a different drive) and viola!!! Sorry for your trouble!! Husband happy now :)

Try creating (if you have not already tried) the exact folder tree as [I:\DESKTOPPC\DesktopPC\Database\Toby3]. Now put the file "Tonys_work_be.mdb" into the folder named "Toby3".

Incredimail problem


Check all the folders, often e-mail clients do not import e-mail directly to your inbox and alike, they will create a fresh folder alongside your inbox, perhaps call "recovered mail".

How to download psp games into my pc


Hi there, I came across an article which explains how to transfer PSP Data to your PC.

---
CONNECT YOUR PSP TO PC
The PSP can function as a USB Memory Stick Duo reader. Using this functionality, you can copy pictures, audio, and other content to and from your Memory Stick Duo. To access the Memory Stick Duo in your PSP from your PC, you'll need a USB cable that has a "Mini-B" connector (common for digital cameras) and a "Standard-A" connector (common for printers, etc). Plug the Mini-B side into the top of your PSP and the Standard-A side into your PC. From the PSP software, navigate to the top of the settings list and select "USB Connection." Your PC (Windows/Mac/Linux) should detect a new "Removable Disk Drive" that you can then access.
FORMAT YOUR MEMORY STICK
In order to be able to use your new memory stick on your PSP, you'll have to format it. When you format your memory stick, the formatting will create a set of new folders on your PSP: GAME, MUSIC, PHOTO, and SAVEDATA.
EXTRACT THE SAVED GAME
This process will greatly depend on which software you use to extract zip files. WinRAR for instance offers the "extract here" option, which will simply extract the contents of a zip file to it's current directory.
TRANSFER SAVE GAME TO "SAVEDATA" FOLDER
Just copy the folder you have just extracted, and paste it into the PSP's "SAVEDATA" folder. But, BEWARE!, to any folder overwrite warnings! Because the PSP save game folders use the same names for the same games, copying folders into these locations could lead to lost data. For this reason, we recommend that you backup your old save games before overwriting them. For Example, I would simply rename a folder like "ULPS0004" to "ULPS0004_backup."
EXIT USB MODE
Because your PSP has been in USB Mode throughout this process, just push X to exit. Then you can safely disconnect your PSP from your PC.
VERIFY TRANSFER OF SAVE DATA
To verify the integrity of the SAVE GAME data you have just transferred, use the PSP's built-in Save Data Utility. Select it from the "Game" menu.

Can't transfer my email files from old computer to new computer


Good Day!



To transfer files from an old computer you can use USB or flash drives, copy the files from your Old Computer to Flash drive, after copying---attach the flash drive to your new computer then copy the files and save it. This is the easiest way to transfer files.

Other way of transferring;

-You can also transfer files by Burning your files into a CD/DVD and copy it to your new computer.
-Get your hard disk from the old computer and attached it to your new computer
-Or connect/network your two computers.

I recommend USB or Flash drives, the simplest and easy way.

Hope I was able to help.

Please let me know if this helps or if you have any questions.
Thank You, Raphael

Microsoft Access Problem


You could distribute your tables over a number of databases, and link them back into the original database. To do this, you can use the database splitter to get the initial setup, and then manually move some of the tables from the backen-database to a different database, and reling these moved tables into the original database. Another good idea would be to move the backend storage to be SQL Server rather than Access, which would give you a more stable and more scaleable solution.

IF the sandisk is not formatted as Fat32 then the new PS3s will not recognize it. To format to fat32 follow these steps:
1. Transfer all the data onto a PC or another thumb drive.

2. go to START, CONTROL PANEL, ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS, COMPUTER MANAGEMENT, and select DISK MANAGER on the left hand side options. Select the external drive and read the "File System" type. If it says "NTFS", right click the disk and select "Delete Partition".

3. Reformat the drive as FAT32

4. Once you are SURE the partition is FAT32, open "My Computer" and double-click on your empty external hard drive. Now, you will want to create a folder system identical to that on the Playstation 3. Right click to create a new folder and name the first folder "Photo". Do this for "Music", "Video" and "Game". When you are finished, you should have 4 folders total in the hard drive. Each folder should (at this point) be empty.

5. Now transfer your saved information into the correct folders, safely remove the drive, and you are ready to go.
