My wife teaches children with severe learning difficulties and over the years has built up a library of stories suitable to their needs. Her PC is over 15 years and she is worried she may loose them one day so would like to put them on my PC. I run Windows XP Home Edition with Microsoft Works 2003. She runs Windows 98 and the files are on both Lotus Word Pro97 and Microsoft Works 4.0 We both have floppy disks. Can you in simple terms explain how this can be done?
I would copy over, using a floppy, 5 or 6 stories in Microsoft Works 4 format and see if your Works 2003 can read the files, it should be able to, most are backward compatible. If not go on microsoft office web site and download the relevant converter.
I would copy the files over anyway as a hard drive that has been working for 15 years is hardly likely to last much longer.
