Move Sage Instant Accounts 10 to Another PC

Hi there,

I need to move our Sage Instant Accounts 10 to another PC.

I thought it would be a case of doing a backup on the old computer, and then restore on the new computer, but this doesn't seem to have worked.

Has anyone had experience with this?

I would have thought that should have worked. I regularly restore a Sage Line 50 backup created in one PC into a second PC without a problem.

What is the actual problem you have when doing it?

If Sage has never been run in the new PC, you might initially have to set up some "dummy" details just to get it started, then "restore" the actual data from the backup created in the old PC which should overwrite the "dummy" details you entered.

Thanks for the reply. WHen I completed the backup from the old PC, I selected All Files as normal.

When I installed Sage on the new machine, I had the set up all of the company details, and once complete I did a restore. Once this was complete I went into customers, suppliers etc, and there wasn't any data.

I didn't setup any dummy data. So I will give that a try tonight!
