Can I restore only some of the files and folders?

  matt-few 01:05 15 Feb 2007

I've been working on a friend's pc tonight reinstalling software and settings after their hard drive failed as was replaced today under warranty.

They have been using Norton Save and Restore for the last two months and set up for weekly backups of the whole hard drive.

The don't want to reinstall an exact image of drive before it failed, however do want to recover some of their files and folders.

Their backups are made on an external WD Book Premium 320GB H/D. Can I reinstall their Norton N&S file to another folder on the external H/D to recover the important files, or is there another way to do this.

They have now asked just to backup files in My Dosc from now on!!

Any help, greatly appreciated.
