Docs-W98SE to XP Home

  Noels 19:54 19 Aug 2004

In the last couple of days I have changed my computer from one with W98 SE to one with XP Home. Before changing I backed up "My Documents" "My Pictures" and above all OE Address Book to separate CDs. I would like to install these on my new computer but find this impossible, even using the inbuilt Wizard. I get messages ( my words ) to the effect that the files are locked or in use by another programme !! Please ideas of how to open and transfer my data.

Regards Noels
