    Can anyone assist me in recovering data that in DAT files?

    I had to do a clean install of XP Pro due to instability. I transferred using the Files and Settings transfer wizard, prior to reinstall, to another computer on the network. It is also running XP Pro.

    I now get a message when I run the wizard to transfer the info back. It says: "Filename" cannot be copied due to change in network settings. Then the wizard shuts down.

    Is there anyway to retrieve the data from these files? I can do without the settings , etc. I only want the data I didn't have duplicate backups on. I would settle for any or all!

    Can anybody help? I saw that a similar delimma had been posted previously, but there were no replies.


    THanks so VERY much! :D

    Thanks kramnnim !

    This might work if I can ever windows update to work. i have SP1 installed already- that I'm sure of.

    When i go to update right now it just keep reopening the scan window when I try to review the updates.

    Oh well - maybe i'll have better luck tomorrow.
