    Hi all.

    So I am quite useless with computers (sorry!) but where I keep my uni files it just says briefcase database and I cant access them, I have spent ages 'googling' with no success. Can I get my files back? I dont believe I ever created this database thing but who knows!! I need help but in plain english please!!

    Thanks, Emma

    We would need a lot more detail. I would suggest you take this question to a site like instead.

    Note that Windows Briefcase was removed in Windows 8 (essentially replaced with SkyDive).

    If you find a computer running an older version of Windows and open your briefcase file on there then you can extract them and save them as regular files.
