They don´t even know that in the zip file are .lnk files,they just zip
complete folders, containing access databases and word dokuments, and
links to other dokument. I can´t tell them to sort them out, there are
sitting "house-wives" on computers they hardly understand. You can´t
even imagine how happy I was to made them understand how to zip a
folder :-)
