    Hello,
    There are a few files you need off of the old hard drive, unless you created a backup on cd or floppy. These files are created when your cmm is calibrated. It would have been good to also have a backup of your probe files. Inaddition, you will probably need to assign the comm port for the communication. Does the hd work enough to slave from a running comp?

      Hmmm...good question. I think you're gonna need a tech over there to make sure your settings are correct per your machine. When we bought a new machine and the tech had to come install everything, he goes in the settings editor and changes things around. Wouldn't hurt to call your distributor.
      I used to be high on life but I built up a tolerance.

              What controller are you using? Most of the newer ones (as far as I know) put all compensation files onto the controller. If you have a Sharpe 32Z w/Leitz protocol this one does it to(I know because that is what I have)

              . You only need to install DMIS (and set up COMM ports if using ethernet) and you should be good to go. Call up tech support and ask them if your controller holds all needed data or not.

                After you are up again, backup, backup, backup. I backup my whole pcdmis folder.
                When in doubt, post code. A second set of eyes might see something you missed.

                  Just talked to the service center & as James mentioned they say all the files i need are stored in the controller .....How cool is that? Also it seems like i keep learning the same lesson about backing up on a regular basis. My daddy always said i 'll have to learn the hard way.. Anyways i can use the overtime right now
