How about: If you haven't got time to do it right the first time, when are you going to have time to fix it? :)

Why are you making copies of everything? You only need a backup copy of something that you intend to change so if something goes wrong, you can correct it. Once things are working ok, the backup isn't needed. As far as the rest of the files go, they are installed by the Instalation Program so as long as you have it, making backups of all the files is a waste. But, if it makes you happy, be my guest. ;D

Hi Bob,
I guess these threads grow so fast it is hard to get everything, but Technical told me what he thought would be a good thing for me to do --- and I appreciate any help you technical people can give me, so I did all of the things he suggested. From my inexperienced point of view, I will never lose anything, so I am NOT going through making copies of files and folders, except for what Technical suggested, and none of that would have happened if those copies of files and folders hadn't been discovered in the DATA folder.  :) :) I guess we will never know where they came from, but I did NOT do it; I had never opened that folder before; I opened it when I was looking for the Ini file.  ???

I guess we have another computer gremlin on our hands. ;D
Come to think of it, I had one of those not to long ago. :)
