If your question is not answered on this page, there are several other pages of FAQs listed on the left of your screen.

Click the Transfer icon. You will then see the database name on the left hand pane. Each database is made up of two parts, an index and data.

Click on the part you wish to transfer to highlight it. To check the size click the Details button on the toolbar. Ensure you have enough hard disk space free. Repeat this for the second part if necessary. To start the transfer, ensure the part you wish to transfer is still highlighted then click the Transfer button and follow the on screen instructions.

Like all your other software and hardware, your Justis CD-ROMs should be insured. If you keep them at home they are probably covered by your Contents Insurance or by your Office Insurance if kept at work. If you misplace your CD-ROMs or they are stolen or otherwise destroyed, it is our company policy to charge a fee based upon the annual value of the subscription that has been lost and the number of updates you will have expected to receive in that same year.
If your CD-ROM is simply damaged (and it is the current issue), return it to the Customer Services team and we will replace it for you free of charge.
