PC to MAC files

Hi Andrew

I have seen similar when copying files via our network servers. If we run a program
called FACSConvert (a BD program, I think) this seems to restore the headers so that the
files are readable by Cellquest. If you try a program such as WinMDI (shareware, I think)
it may be able to read the files in their current state.

Worth a try, Good luck.

Cheers

Ian

Dear Flow'ers,

We recently had a hard disk on a FACScalibur crash. Fortunately we have been able to
retrieve the data on the disk using a 3rd party company, but the FCS files now have PC
icons and cannot be opened on Cell Quest pro. Does anyone know of a utility that can
change these files (or just the file attributes) back to mac format? 

Many thanks,

Andy.
