Hi tinye,

Were you able to email the file to your other computer? If so, then when you get the email, right click on the attached file and save it to your computer. Then go into Gopher and restore your data from that file.

Let me know where you are getting stuck.

Yes try that. It should allow you to save the gopher2003.gdb file to your computer.

Have you installed Gopher on the new computer? If not, you need to do that then follow the above suggestion.
