Import the v9.8.2 PFC organize folder into AOL Gold
Please provide an option to import the v9.8.2 Personal Filing Cabinet organize folder into AOL Gold. Many of us have old email pertaining to the v9.8.2 PFC organize folder that is on a flash drive. There are many of us who need to read our old v9.8.2 email.
Here is a similar topic with lots of additional comments
The option to import a personal filing cabinet (PFC) file from an older version of the AOL Desktop, into the AOL Desktop Gold, is now available. Before following the steps below, make sure your AOL Desktop Gold is up to date.
Go to the Help menu on the top right, select ‘About AOL’ from the drop-down menu, and make sure you have the 11.0.2102 Revision. In case you have a lower revision, click ‘Check for Updates’ from the Help menu, and after 15-20 minutes close and reopen the AOL Desktop Gold.
The ‘PFC Import’ feature allows you manually navigate to a PFC file on your computer and import data from that file. To use this new feature follow these steps:
1. Sign in to AOL Desktop Gold.
2. Click the Settings icon.
3. While in the General settings, click the ‘My Data’ tab.
4. Click ‘PFC Import’.
5. Select your file.
6. Once your personal data is imported, you’ll have access to it in Desktop Gold.
There are two types of PFC files from the old AOL Desktop software:
1) Automatically created files:
-Exist in the old AOL Desktop’s installations “Organize” folder, with a name matching
the user’s screenname/account.
-Do NOT have the .pfc extension and are associated with a screensname/account
-If you are unsure which file, from the “Organize” folder, is the PFC file, select all the files. There is a built-in logic that will automatically select and validate the PFC.
2) Manually exported PFC files:
-These contain the .pfc extension but are NOT associated with a SN/account
-Are imported into the current AOL Desktop Gold user’s account to the "Imported on
" mailbox folder (e.g. Imported-12/12/2018).
-Are typically named Mail.pfc but can be renamed by the user.
-You can merge PFCs from one account to another account by adding the .PFC extension to the selected file. This will import the file into the currently signed in AOL Desktop Gold user’s account under the folder: Imported on .
