Not able to recover files RRS feed

  • Question

  • HI all I'm running win 7 ultimate sp1 and I'm not able to recover my backup.  The files are backed up to a network drive using the backup/ restore feature in windows. The files are viewable with direct access so I know they are there. But when I go to system recovery and select the network drive location and select the backup sets it comes back with windows was not able to find any backup sets on (the file path) given, please select a different location. Does anyone have any ideas on how to resolve this? Thanks in advance

  • You have asked in the wrong forum. This forum is for questions and discussions about the TechNet Wiki. I believe you should ask your question in a Microsoft Answers/Community forum dedicated to Windows 7 and backups, such as this one:


    You can click "Show filters", then for "Windows topics" select "Windows update, recovery, & backup". Search for similar questions, or click on "Participate" and select "Ask a Question". The Answers/Community forums are on a different platform, so we cannot move this question there. You will need to ask your question again. Sorry.

  • I'd try copying the backup set to local disk. You can also ask for help over here.


    or open a case with product support here.
