Tomorrow is the day for the unistall/install of my operating system (Windows XP) I have made a back-up of my c-drive onto an external drive using Paragon (as suggested on this site) and had a look at it. I don't understand what these files are or how to use them - can anyone explain please.

Sorry, tried to attach a screen dump but can't find the link for attachment so - an example of a file name is :arc_140410092706578_0001...0006 File
2,193,260kb.
The back-up folder is 28.4gb & my hard drive is 29gb so imagine the back-up was successful, but the end product was not what I was expecting (naively a list of programs & files that resembled my c drive!_
