RE: Computer, Make Up Your Mind!
MessageI've had this problem before as well, but I don't use Quicken. I suspect it's something to do with Windows. Perhaps clicking too quickly from one step to the next. Or just a glich in the system. Sometimes is a nuisance if you're in a hurry.

An interesting thing is happening with my new computer and I was wondering if others might have had it happen to them.
I backup my Quicken files to diskette after each session. When I put in my diskette to backup my data, I get the following dialog box:
“Quicken for Windows
Unable to access the disk in drive A. Please make sure the drive is ready and the disk is not write protected.
Do you want to try again?
I never do anything to the diskette, just click “Yes” and it goes through he second time. To me it seems interesting that the computer rejected the diskette the first time but will accept it the second time.
Is it a feature of Windows XP that it has a less stringent set of criteria for some operations on a second attempt?Bob Crowle, crowleb@...
