Technical Help / New Outlook
« on: Sunday 26 November 23 11:50 GMT (UK)  »
I have just started using the New Outlook  after using Live Mail. I had constant reminders that it was being phased out.
I have managed to import all my contacts, but there are none of my storage folders showing.
I can`t find the instructions given  so sent Microsoft a message. Apparently the Import feature isn`t included on New Outlook.
How can I get around this , I have lots of stuff I need to keep  from old emails.

Technical Help / help please with Dropbox

Dropbox is driving me mad. I have the basic free plan.
I have been trying to delete files from both my PC and Dropbox as I really don`t need to keep a lot of the stuff.
I`ve unsynced  lots of files / documents with Dropbox for the time being but the Documents folder is still  synced.
When I try to delete a file / document from Dropbox it also deletes it from my PC, then if I restore it , it goes back to Dropbox where I don

Technical Help / Dropbox
« on: Saturday 05 August 23 19:10 BST (UK)  »
I have Dropbox Basic and it's been storing all my files and folders.
I have had a message to say my limit is up and need to upgrade.
I can manage without lots of the stuff stored so have deleted it without losing it from my Pc.
Now I find that deleting it from Dropbox won't release space.
This is after messing around with it all day 😉

Just wondering if I can delete the current Dropbox account and open another one, then be more selective in what I store.

Alternatively is there another free storage system with more space than Dropbox.


England / Where are Alfred and Alice.
« on: Friday 04 August 23 15:44 BST (UK)  »
I have the birth certificate of Margaret Jane Wilcox. Born 8 May 1873 at 49 Commercial Road Lambeth. Registered 22 May 1873.
Father Alfred Wilcox , waiter. Mother Alice Wilcoxon formerly Shea. Alfred made his mark.

I can find nothing at all about this family  no baptism,  no marriage.  Nothing in census,  no deaths.
I found the address in 1871 but no clues there.
Perhaps someone else can spot something I`m missing.
