My employer who had sidekick 97 as it's data base for client info has is going away. I managed to get everything on a floppy. But I can't access or open disk. I need two things, (1) to open disk and (2) transport data to a differnt system such as Out Look our act. I am not a pro at working with computer. How do I handle this?

RE: sidekick 97

Dear vurt7245,
The best way of doing this would be to First get a copy of Sidekick97(Internet Sidekick).
See the following Site:


Then, once you have installed the program, extract the files from the Floppy (either unzip them or use Backup and Restore) to put them in the
C:\Program Files\Starfish\InternetSidekick\Userdata folder and then Open them with Sidekick and then SaveAs the cardfiles as
Tab Delimited .txt Files
These can then be Imported into whatever program you want.

Regards Jim
