Save your data from time to time so that you can recover it safely when the computer that contains it fails.
Saving messages locally is a way to move them from an old computer to a new one where you want to restore them. Saving emails in the local AOL Saved on My PC workbook allows you to back them up from time to time so that you can recover them safely when the computer that contains it breaks down.
To save mail in the AOL Saved on My PC workbook, you must do the following:
- You have to look on the computer for a file named (the AOL screen name) .abi. If the screen name is abcd, for example, one must look for a file named abcd.abi.
It must be found in a folder named organize. A specific location is C: \ Documents and Settings \ All Users \ Application Data \ AOL \ C_America Online 9.0 \ organiz. However, you can also access this file directly.
- We mount a directory in the folder C_America Online 9.0. For other versions of AOL, the folder may have a different name. In any case, you must mount a directory from the organization folder.
- Highlight the organization folder.
- Then select Edit | Copy from the explorer window menu.
- We open the desired storage location. Either in a CD or DVD, another hard drive, a network location or a USB key, in Explorer.
- Select Edit | Paste menu. Recovery saved on PC mail
There, we just store all locally backed up pseudonym data to make it easy to recover and migrate to another computer.
