Restoring data from backup RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am attempting to restore data from a backup made on a previous machine.  It seems my options for the location of the restoration are limited.  I want to restore the files to my "D" drive, but the One Care Live application won't allow me to change from the "C" drive that it wants to restore to.  I am using XP Pro

  • You are correct. OneCare can only restore to the original drive that the backup was from C: to C: and D: to D:.
    The only way around this would be for you to not have a C: drive, which would cause OneCare to prompt for an alternate location and is not likely possible if C: is your system drive on the new PC.
    You'll have to restore to C: and then move the file manually to D:
