Restore XP Backup

  JerryH 17:02 09 Apr 2005

Before changing my motherboard I backed up my C drive to an external hard drive using the XP backup facility. My external drive shows a file "Backup 18.3.05.bkf" with a size 19.8 GB, which looks right. Using the XP restore wizard, under the "Restore and manage media" tab, "File" shows on the left and under the Backup Identification Label it says "No entries found". I am unable to expand "File", nor can I check the left-hand box so as to move on to "Start Restore".

Any ideas on how to get at my backed-up data? It seems to be there, otherwise how can the file be 19.8 GB! I'm starting to panic!

What did you back up everything? ie a drive image.

I think your problem is if it is a drive image you have done then your computer now has a new Motherboard.This means it is not the same computer.It hink window backup was intended only for hard drive failure.
