Do I need to format new partition on my hard drive to resolve this issue?
Posted on 2012-09-02
I have a company that I prepare taxes for using ProSystems (CCH) and there are two accounts. One is for the tax attorney and I am using his to do the 2011 taxes. I am using the company that he is overseeing to do the taxes for 2008-2010. I came in after a guy that was supposed to be handling tax compliance was not doing his job. Long story with too many details.
Anyway, I had to get a new laptop to do the work for this year because the old one I was using that the company owned was very old. I have everything on the hard drive and have a backup drive and some other contingencies to make sure I do not lose everything.
The problem is I had been using my own laptop for the old tax returns (the company knows and has signed off for me to access their server, use whatever means are necessary, etc.,
When I tried to log into the second account (both are via desktop versions of the tax program and not internet based because it is much easier to use this way) the tax program indicated that I could not have two different accounts existing on the same desktop.
My question is can I do a drive partition so I can add the second account under a different drive or will that work?
The program I am trying to use for two accounts is:
ProSystem fx Tax
CCH a Wolters Kluwer business
(I will have a second question to ask after this about the backup files in zip form that cause me problems.)
I am using a HP Pavilion dv6-6c14nr with Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit (I upgraded from Home Premium or actually just loaded Ultimate from OEM disk, not upgrading)
I have 8 GB of memory and an I-5 processor (what I was told).
