Yes when you view your BV files on another PC, you typically see only images and text that were generated within BV. You have to remember that although BV doesn't look as you would expect, these 'missing' elements have been published so they are not lost!

You could re-insert those things you can't see, so they become visible in BV but I tend not to bother.

The important thing is to back up all your BV pages and images etc to a CD or Memory Stick should a PC break down.

You have to copy the entire C:\MyDocuments\BlueVoda to the other computer.

The simplest is to copy the above file using a thumb drive.

Make sure all the images and graphics you used in your webpages are also copied to the oter computer.

Any element you have published, will be on the server..yes!

.... and yes always good practice to back up files/images/elements to a CD or memory stick
