File and settings transfer wizard

  reddwarfcrew 00:17 13 Sep 2006


I wanted to reinstall XP so ran the file and setings transfer wizard to back up all my settings and saved it to a USB hard drive.

I have now formatted the drive and reinstalled windows and put all the updates on etc.

I then went to run the wizard to get all my settings back and it is telling me that the file was created using a prvious version of the wizard and therefore to go back and re-do it with the newer version.... which obviously i cant.

Is there a way to extract my settings from he .dat file so I can get my PC back to how it should be.
