  • If your subscription is still active install the One Care trial - http://onecare.live.com/standard/en-us/install/install.htm To activate, open One Care, select "Subscribe" and when asked for a Live ID enter the Live ID and password associated with your One Care subscription. Configure backup and perform a small backup. Open backup again, select "Restore Files", select "Custom Restore", select "Files from another computer", restore the files to a folder on your desktop and when the files are restored you can drag and drop them to the desired locations.
