  • If you plan to re-load the disks provided by the PC maker, then you will need to install OneCare and then use the backup wizard to restore your data to the PC. You will also need to reinstall any other programs that you installed.

     

      Restore files from a backup

       

      If your computer goes through a hardware failure or if some of your files are deleted from your computer and you've backed up your files, you can restore the files to your computer from a previous backup. If you're using a hub PC, you can restore backup files from any computer in your OneCare circle. You can choose which files to restore and which backup to restore the files from.

      To restore all files from a backup:

    1. Open Windows Live OneCare.
    2. In the main OneCare window, in the Backup and Restore area, click Restore files.
    3. Click Restore files from a local backup.
    4. Click Express Restore.
    5. Click Restore files.
    6. Click Finish.

    11. Click Custom Restore.
    12. To restore files from the most recent backup of your computer, click Restore files from the current backup on this computer.
    13. –or–

      Restore files that were backed up from another computer.

       

      1.  
        1. Click Restore files from backup of another machine.
        2. Click the backup that you want to restore files from.

      –or–

      Restore files from an earlier backup.

       

      1.  
        1. Click Restore files from an earlier backup or a backup from another computer.
        2. Click the location of the backup device, and then click Next.
        3. Click the backup that you want to restore files from.

      Restore specific types of files.

       

      1.  
        1. Click Restore files by file type.
        2. Next to the types of files that you want to restore, select the check boxes, and then click Next.
        3. Next to the files that you want to restore, select the check boxes, and then click Next.
        4. Decide whether you want to restore files that have the same name as files that are already stored on your computer, click the appropriate option, and then click Next.

      –or–

      Select the files that you want to restore.
