In preparing to move files to a new computer I moved a folder containing all the information about a society of which I am the Secretary onto an external hard disc. I subsequently copied this file onto another external hard disc and then onto the new computer. Everything seems to have moved successfully except the Excel file which contains my whole Membership list! This has reverted to the original file which I inherited in 2006. Another Excel file which I created in 2006 has moved successfully. I have tried searching on both my old computer and my new computer and the external discs but the latter only contain the 2006 file whilst the original computer does not contain the file at all as I moved the whole folder! Is there any chance I can locate this missing data? I can probably reconstruct most of the information from the related file and the backup copy I created (unfortunately this was in April before all the Membership renewals came in!). I was using the file the week before I moved it and it seemed to be working perfectly.
Any suggestions would be very welcome!
