Transfer to another Computer

 

Posted: 20 Dec 2005 02:48 am

 

I just started to play with Morning Flight a few days ago and did a lot of paper prices and contact entering at work today. I would like to bring this info home so I can continue to explore and learn. Is it possible to transfer this info to my home computer?

Also, if I need to do a backup of all this information I entered today ... which files do I backup? Sorry, I am a slow learner.

Daryl, look at it this way: Without a help system and manual, everyone is a slow learner. I'm just glad you didn't let that stop you from asking the questions.

All Morning Flight data files are located in the program directory (C:\Program Files\PrintFire\MorningFlight by default). To transfer the information you entered from your office computer to your home computer, copy all the .TPS files in that directory (beginning with the ACTFile.TPS and ending with the WRNFile.TPS), and paste them into the MorningFlight directory on your home computer, overwriting the files that are already there. Needless to say, reverse the process to transfer that information back to your office computer.

The Gold Edition will include an automated back-up utility, but until then, either back up those same .TPS data files to tape, Zip disk, or external hard drive, or simply back up the entire MorningFlight directory.

You'll note that all the data files are named XXXFile.TPS, except for three: WKC1205, WKM1205, and WKS1205. Those are monthly worksheet files for Booklets (WKCompound Products), Merchandise (WKMerchandise), and Offset/Copies/Digital (WKSheets). 1205 tells us they're December 05 files.

Booklets? TBA, after the Gold Edition and the help system and the manual.
