New HDD old files?
I have just installed a new hard drive. I reinstalled Office 2003 on the new
drive and configured my e-mail. Now I have put the old drive in as a "slave"
to my new hard drive. I am trying to get my e-mail and contacts from my old
installation on the old drive. I have had no luck so far. I was not able to
create backups before I put the new drive. Computer power supply crash
So how can I access the old files on the old hard drive?
Thanks for any and all help

Microsoft Office Excel, Microsoft Office Word, and Notepad. Anybody who
knows what Visual Studio 2008 is knows that one of the file types it can be
used to edit is *.html files. It's even Microsoft software, and the version
of Office that I have installed is 2003, so you would think that if Office

Can you save a file in the same filename and still retain the earlier
revisions? Someone accidently overwrote a file and should have kept the
earler versions.Is there something in Excel that I can turn on so my main
filename only changes with an extension, therefore keeping all my earlier
revisions? i.e. 'filenameX'.xls1 'filenameX'.xls2 so everytime I save it to
'filenameX', Excel is adding a new revision number automatically so I don't
loose revisions or accidentily wipe out good data. Help!

You can't convert them unless there is a conversion program around
the only other way I can think of would be to use Quattro Pro

...Easier ways to selectively open a .wks as read-only...
Excel has a way via its internal file-open mechanism any worksheet as

of Autosave like I am (to wit my related post on Autosave), you'll
know how good an idea this can be. I know there are some freeware
alternatives to Autosave (Autosafe, for example) but as a corporate
user, I can't really use/install freeware.
