Restore Backup From within Windows 7 - Restore Tool RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've installed the restore tool under windows 7 and now just need to restore backups, but I dont know how to go about using it?  Any instructions anywhere?  No GUI pops up; should it be executed in some kind of compatiblity mode under windows 7?

  • I have not actually run it, but I believe you simply open it via the Start Menu entry and the wizard will be the exact same one that is found in OneCare full install for a custom restore.

    Select - Custom Restore
    Select - Restore files that were backed up from another computer.
    Click the backup that you want to restore files from.
