Hi Guys and Gals !
I'll toss out some red meat for the Guru's.
Over the years I have owned many computers dating back to the beginning of IBM's introduction of the desk top. I evolved with all of the progress however my 13 year old grandson is probably more computer literate than I am ! Never the less my current question pertains to zipped files.
I installed Quicken to keep track of my personal finances. Two computers later the files appear to be scattered all over. My initial computer was an HP slimline with a pocket media external hard drive which plugged into the front. I used it to back up daily financial entries.
Subsequently I installed Windows 7 and immediately encountered problems. The files were saved on the pocket media hard drive.
A couple of weeks ago I bought a new HP and connected the pocket media hard drive. A search of it reveals files in numerous places. Quite a mystery since I always used the same Quicken backup, feature for 2 or 3 years.
The pocket media capacity says I have 25 GB of free space on a 74.5 GB device. That's quite a mystery since I previously had much, much more free space. I have found Quicken files scattered all over the place. Some files, the bulk, are apparently zipped particularly 2009. When I try to open them I receive a message, access denies. This is on the new computer.
I'm asking how do I open these zipped files. Numerous attempts, help instructions and books haven't yet provided me with a solution.
