Question about Computers & Internet
Due to the destruction of files by previous management I have been using a program I am familiar with, Lotus 123. I have 2 years of bookkeeping record on a Zip Disk, print through Excel. Last week I had worked on files saved to a disk for one portion of the business, removed the disk, inserted another disk with different files and the information on the second disk is the same as the prev one I had been working on. How can this happen. Disk 2 info is competely over ridden by the infoo on disk 1. I have worked with Lotus 123 for 20 years and know that you can only save one file at a time and to completely copy and paste the data would not over ride info only add to it, which I did not do. Please help.
Thankfully I have a hard copy of the info but it will take hours and hours to restore this info for them as they ahve requested.
It's called a disk cache, the cache wasn't flushed before you swapped the disks. I remember Lotus 1-2-3, I first used it in 1987 on a Compaq portable. But I haven't used a Zip disk in 10 years, that's totally obsolete technology.
Good thing you have hard copies.

Testimonial: "Thank you. I now know to leave the disk in the zip drive even after I have saved the file and allow time for the cache to be completed. "
