I think the archive posts are read only. They were copied as a read only archive when SBS went belly up.Thank you. They did not reply to an email so I'll try the phone.
My problem is totally my fault. I figured a recovery may fix my loss of recording ability. I didn't think I had anything to lose by trying the recovery. How wrong I was. If I would have spent another hour researching this I might have figured out that I was going in the wrong direction.
I was following the thread in the Backstage archive.
May I suggest that some sort of note be placed on the thread that guides a user through the recovery process that it no longer works and will brick their SL2.
