Having only had a Vista pc for 3 weeks, I don't know much about restoring the files created by the Vista backup facility. I ran that before having to restore the laptop to original settings.
The problem now is that the laptop went back to the shop for good & I now only have the good old XP machine to work with.
Is it possible to find the files I want within the zip files & extract them? I've looked at the .wbcat file but don't seem to have anything that will "open" it, so don't know which zip files to look at (there are 36 of them)
I had transferred across all my Outlook Express e-mail folders from the XP machine, expecting that I would be using the laptop for the forseeable future. Same with some web sites I was working on.
I wasn't expecting the laptop to be, shall we say "useless", and that the files would be restored once I got it back again. So now I need to try & get some of those files back again, otherwise everything done during the 3 weeks of owning that new laptop has been lost. Obviously "if" I buy another Vista machine I can access them.
