    Can I restore files that I backed up using One Care but no longer have the service installed on my computer?

  • Technically, yes. Easily, not if there are many files to restore or locate.

    The backup files are actually standard .zip files that can be opened with Winzip. However, if any large files were backed up, you will need to rejoin them with a 3rd party utility - http://www.freebyte.com/hjsplit/ - as they were split into parts during backup.

    Figuring out which file or files you wish to restore might be a pain.

    Install OneCare and use the restore wizard and then remove OneCare again.
