Back up format RRS feed

  • Question

  • I used to use Synctoy for backing up My Documents, My Favorites, Outlook Express Address Book, Outlook Express Folders to an external hard drive. When done, I could open up two windows( my hard drive on one and my C drive on the other) and compare the files, side by side. Now that I have Windows Live One Care, I used the backup feature to do the same thing. What I got was 609 zipped folders. I was able to unzip the first one by going through several different screens and clicking on the folder. Is there an easier way, or can I save all my files to a different format?

  • One Care stores backups in zip format and there is no option to change this. There is really no easy way to view the files other than to unzip them.
