All files with extensions, B00, B01, etc., are backups from
previous upgrades of NoteTab and can safely be deleted.
Any file with NoteTab as a first name I would recommend moving to
the new location, especially, Notepro.ini. You may have to edit
it, changed pathnames, etc.. When, and if, you do edit it, it
must be saved as !Notepro.ini, exclamation mark.
That will allow it to load automatically the next time you start
NoteTab. This file allows you to retain any alterations you've
made to NoteTab's function or interface.
You may run into enough path conflicts that the easiest way would
be starting over with these files, I think they are all generated
by normal use of NoteTab.
Files with .clb extensions are clipbooks and should be moved to
the new NoteTab Libraries folder. .otl, outline files, some of
which are in the NoteTab root folder should be saved, and others
should go to the NoteTab Outline folder.
I can't comment any files pertaining to SGL, delete them at your
discretion. The error can probably be deleted but it may be a
text file you can load into NoteTab to investigate.
The text files listed are informational and should be saved for
you to reference. The NoteProINI-saved-by-SGL-Aug-11-2001.ini, I
assume is just a backup of NotePro.ini and you may want to save
it, at least, for the time being.
