Restore files to a different computer

  charliep 21:48 16 Sep 2006

using XP pro with sp2, used the Windows backup tool to incrementaly back my files from my desktop to an external hard drive on a daily basis. The desktop hd was partitioned and the files on drive D

The desktops hard drive got wiped and I need to restore the files from the external hard drive to my laptop. For some reason the most recent files are not being cataloged. The laptop is running XP pro with sp2 also, but the hd is not partitioned.

Any suggestions on how th recover these files to my laptop most welcome.

It only works with the computer they came off. Unless the are like docs Photos etc odd windows files may also work but not the system
