I have recently had a raid problem which involved taking all my programs, docs, music etc off my hard drive. The shop reformatted the drive and reinstalled all windows xp back on the drive. When I go into the back up folder they created (NTFS)to find pictures, word docs, excel docs etc all i get is windows cant open the file as it does not know which program created it. Is there a simple way of getting my files back or a program that can read these files. I have several thousand files in this folder due to having a very large music libary (which I have retrieved as they were backed up on my Ipod). All the different file extensions i am at a loss to know which of them refer to which programs.
Any help greatfully recieved but please bear in mind I am not that good with computers so any answers please be as straightforward as possible.
Firstly i do not know what program the shop used when they saved all my data as they tranferred it to another hard drive then put it all back into a folder named back up and just put windows back so the computer worked and told me I would have to find the files I needed from the back up folder.
The extensions i am getting are .mof .dll .bmp .swf .txt .cfg .exe .gif .elm .inf .bin .olb .ini .wtf .idx .qtr thats some of them but i am shore there are more as I cant go through all the files at the moment. thnaks
