in my 3 copies of my pics or other backed up folders there is no file

anything else that would prevent me from accessing and using it.
simply start your program and goto that file anytime the user wishes.
at this point however i always work off the primary files. but the
backups are just as good for any use anytime.

Gary, I understand that with your usage of the "original NON compressed files" that you can instantly have instant access of any of your files.

What about the files that are compressed on your backup drives. I may have misunderstood but I was (and still am) of the opinion that you do not have instant access for these with any of the normal programs such as Explorer.
That is what Ben is concerned about.

Specifically: What is needed to be done to be able to access the Compressed Back up files. This explanation would be very helpful.
Thanks again for your help....

the only compressed file is the norton save and restore backup. and
there is no need to look in there till the c drv crashes. i have had
to use that compressed backup 3 times now and the norton software
worked perfectly.
