Restoring Backed up files in an external drive. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I recently had to perform a system recovery.      Prior to the recovery, I backed up most of the folders and files using Windows Vista Backup and Restore feature instead of using the external drive backup feature.

    After completing the recovery, tried to retore them but was unsuccessful.  Backed up files are in compressed form.   There are total of 184 files named Backup files 1 through to 184. 

    When I tried to retore files using Windows Vista Backup and Restore Center, a caution message saying There are no backups available on this computer.

    I use Windows Vista Home Premium.

    I wonder if anyone could help me with the issue.

    Thanking you in advance,
