move Peachtree/pervasive databases to another server

We have Peachtree 2007 installed on a very old server that will be
decomissioned soon. After installing the Peachtee server components on
the new server (Dell Poweredge 2800, Windows 2003 Server, SP2), i
copied the companies (we have 3 subsidiaries) data folder to it from
the old server. Started Peachtree client on a WinXP pc, attempted to
open one company, and received an error message that indicated that
other company data was in this folder, and to restore from backup.
Is there a correct or proper procedure to move company data/pervasive

The best process is after moving the company folders to the server, uninstall PT on the workstations and reinstall making sure the data path is one level above the actual folders. For example, say your company folder is ABCPROCO. If you show a data path of P:\Company, your ABCPROCO folder should be inside the P:\Company folder. In older version of PT you could just redirect the data path but in 2007 and 2008, it's best to uninstall and reinstall.
