I am no nearer solving my file problem despite all the help I got from a previous post. I upgraded to XP from 98se and office 2000 and used Adaptec to back up my files onto a cd-rw. I now have Nero but can't do anything with the files on the cd-rw when I work on them and try to save get error sharing violation. I have tried copying them dragging to desktop,etc can't rename sanme error message tried brand new disc no joy. I am getting a little desperate now. Thanks Joe
Not sure on this one joe95. But until someone comes up with the answer, type "error sharing violation" into google and it will give you a couple of things to try. Good luck, hope you find the answer there but if not then I'm sure someone in the forum will know. j.
