One computer crashed. It had windows XP home edition. Did not have backup disk at time. Used my original windows XP home edition to get it to work. When inserted it stated that the home edition on the system was newer then mine. Now have backup disk. Can I now use these backup disk to bring the system back to where it shuld be?
If you did a reinstall a fresh one without repair then all the work saved on the crashed comp is gone wiped over. unless you use recova to recover the work even then you will have to load onto a different drive to recover those files.
