Restore files to multiple users C and D partition back to only C RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an XP machine with multiple users with their files on the C and D partitions.  I want to restore from Live OneCare back to a clean install of XP.  Can I restore all of the files back to a clean install with only a C partition?

  • In theory, yes.
    When you perform a restore, if files need to be restored and the destination drive does not exist, OneCare will place them into a special restore folder at the root of the system drive.
    Use the custom restore option for restoring from another computer.
