    This really piosses me off. I got a ton of files in 98 that I converted to .qic

    XP says NO..you cannot do that.

    Those files will only be good if I trash XP and go back to 98, burn a ceedee and then reinstall XP requiring a visit from Microsoft for new approval.

    Anyotherway?

    a ton of what files? I'm unfamiliar with those...what are they and why do you need to convert them?

    In win 98 it is hard drive backup compression. Quick, simple and neatly arranged. Nice compression. I used it mainly for my airplane collection in combat flight simulator but I also had tons of samples recorded live for later use, nature sounds, well all told with the compression , about 90gigs worth. Xp does not recognize it and I tried to download an install a file converter and was routed to the XP help menu saying it is a violation of law to cop programs..etc.. Most of the files are mine!! (except airplanes, gauges..etc..)

    Bummerooo
