I recently reloaded AOL having saved the previous filing cabinet and download files, but they list as .abi , .aut, .bag, .arl in a PFC file. I attempted to open them using AOL to no avail. Is there a reader available that opens these cryptic files?
Thanks

You will need to add the PFC files, they do not yet exist. When you open the main file, locate the largest one, which should contain your screen name. Then, right click on it and rename it. You can choose to leave it as is, or change to something else, the catch is, you MUST add ".pfc" to the end of it. Once you have the files renamed to include ".pfc," open your AOL. Click on "file" in the upper left corner. Click "open" and navigate to the newly renamed file that includes ".pfc" It should open right up. :tazz:

I should clarify, you will need to open the "organize" file, and then look for the largest file containing your AOL screen name, and then rename that one to end with ".pfc"
