Question: How can I send files between two computers (e.g., home and work)?

Answer: There are several methods you can use to send files to yourself between two computers:

Method #1: "Send File to Self."

This is where you are sending the file to yourself at another location (e.g., work PC to home PC).

a. Click Files tab > Send File to Self > Send File to Yourself.

(You may need to Set Up Services first. The software will let you know if this is the case.)

b. Go to the other computer and start Family Law Software.

c. Click Files tab > Get Files. You will see a list of all files that have been sent to you, including the one you just sent to yourself.

Because of Firewalls, this does not always work. If it does not work, try another method.

Method #2: "Send File to Anyone."

This allows you to send the current file to anyone, anywhere.

a. Click Files tab > Send File to Anyone > Send File.

b. The software may ask for your e-mail address, for the "Reply to" field of the e-mail.

Method #3: Back Up and Restore from Flash Drive.

This method is good if you have a flash drive and just one file, or just a few files.

a. Open the file in Family Law Software.

b. Click Files tab > Back Up Files > SAVE...

c. Go to the other computer and start Family Law Software.

d. Click Files tab > Back Up Files > LOAD...

Method #4: Copy Files to Flash Drive.

This method is good if you have many files.

a. Find the location where your files are stored.

To find the location of the files on your computer, click the Files tab.

On the Open/Save file screen, you will see at the top the line:

The current folder is: ...

Make a note of this.

b. Using Windows / My Computer, you may drag the file(s) to a Flash Drive.

c. Go to the other computer and insert the Flash Drive.

d. Using Windows / My Computer, copy it to a folder (typically the My Documents > Family Law Software folder) on your other computer.
