One Care backup and Windows 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I upgraded a machine to Windows 7 RC. I see one care does not/will not work. How can I get some backup files made with one care on to my Windows 7 system?

    Thanks Jim

  • The way I would do this is on another computer that has One Care installed choose a custom restore, select "restore files from another computer" and restore the files to a folder on your desktop. Copy and paste the needed files to a flash drive or an external drive then copy and paste them in Windows 7. If you don't have another computer with One Care installed you can manually extract the backups using a utility such as WinZip and a file joiner http://www.freebyte.com/hjsplit/ to join any split files.
