issues restoring a backup

  houseyt1 13:40 11 Oct 2009

Hi, just before my pc bust on me I managed to make a backup of all my important stuff using nero 6 onto my second hard drive. Now that I have the pc fixed it has had to have the first hard drive wiped.

Iv tried to reinstall nero6 (yes i know its old) but it is telling me that my trial version has ended, so I cant use it. I downloaded nero 9 backitup but this doesn't seem to want anything to do with the backup made with nero 6.

So I'm really trying to find a way to restore all my stuff. If anyone has any ideas it would be greatly appreciated.

What is the file extension of the backups?

There is an NBI file on the second hard drive and also there is a folder called,

'20092409_002352_My Documents'

The NBI file also has the same name.

All the contents of that folder are actually accessable, as in, the my music folder can be opened along with any mp3's that are in there. However nero has altered all the file/folder names and so all the information, while accessable, has screwed up names.

I'm guessing if I can get nero to restore the 'my documents' folder it will restore all the names as well?
