Default Old work did not follow to new computer

I got a new computer and did as suggested in the forum to copy the files to the new computer so that work could continue on the exponant that I had. But it has not continued the work on that one and has gotten new work. Any ideas?

Thats the way it is. wortodo.txt. I am not sure if it just picked up enough work from the server when I downloaded the program on to the new computer and the old exponet will be the next one done. I guess I will have to wait for a month for it to finish the work it is doing.

Actually, in this case, since the user has already gotten *new* work from the server, what he needs to do is merge worktodo.ini into worktodo.txt:

-Stop Prime95.
-Open both files in a text editor
-Cut and paste the contents of worktodo.ini onto the top of worktodo.txt (right under the "Worker #1" line)
-Save worktodo.txt.
-Delete worktodo.ini.
-Start Prime95.

Ah, hadn't thought of that. Yes, that would work too.

Edit: Though, that would add the work to the *end* of worktodo.txt rather than the beginning. In the long run it won't really matter, though I'd imagine the OP would probably prefer to finish his earlier work first before doing any more on the new stuff.

Or, you could rename the .txt to .add and the .ini to .txt (while Prime95 is closed), but that might not really work right with Worker sections...just manually merging the files would really be the best option. It's not difficult.
