  • As far as I know, the restore tool is the same interface that exists within OneCare. That means that you would need to point the restore to the location of the OneCare backup on your networked drive. The backups will typically be made to a folder on the backup drive called "Windows Live OneCare Backup" and each PC backup set will be named with the PC name and the year.
