Poles ‘n’ Wires has important data files that should be part of a regular backup regimen. I read somewhere if you don’t have at least 3 copies of a file it is not important to you.

These files are:

Version 6 (located in the program directory)
  • pnw.mdb
  • polesnwires.ini
  • options.ini
  • register.dat
Version 7 (located in the data directory C:\ProgramData\PowerMation\PolesnWires)
  • pnwdata.xml
  • pnw.ini
  • pnwdata-custom-poles.xml.
  • licence.dat

If any of these files become corrupted the program will not operate correctly.
