Hi friends I am in deeeeeeeep trouble.I was using Win98 and i upgraded it with WinXP Prof.After installation my few files were damaged which are very very important.One file is Excel file named chart.xls.when i try to open this file following message is displayed.
"Chart.xls could not be found.Check Spelling of file name and verify that file location is correct.Make sure fiel has not been renamed,moved or deleted.".
And second file is of Microsoft access having name data.This file partially open but when i clicks on one of the option it gives message
"data.mdb is missing"
I think it is data file which is conencted with main file.
How can i recover these both files.These were working perfectly all right in Win 98 and all this happende after installtion which should not happen.What i think that XP has overlaped these files.Will deleting Xp and again installing 98 can retrive my files.Please givew me suggestion.
I am very upset.
Bye Moon.:confused: :sleep:

Sorry to hear that you lost some files, but before you do any upgrades or clean installs you should always backup your important files.

Could you see the icons of the spreedsheets???

If you could there is still hope of recovering your files. But if you unistall Xp you will lose everything.

Also try to see if you could see the files in DOS. Run a command prompt and try to find your files.

Click the start menu.
Go to run.
Type "cmd"
Type in the directory where you have your files store. (i.e. c:\>cd progam files)

How are you trying to open the files , if your clicking on the file and not the link it would not be displaying the cannot find file message. (You cant see a file thats not there :D)

Try to do a search for the files in question and see if they are in the same place that the links your clicking on point to. If not just update your links.
