Restoring vista back up to windows 8

  mivec 19:35 02 May 2014

I have just purchased a new windows 8 laptop but want to load vista load files backed up on a netac hard drive. I have searched many places but none of the suggestions seem to work. One said go to system maintenenace in control panel but I do not seem to have this in my windows 8.1. Would appreciate any assistance as to how I can do this.

Hi and thanks for the reply. I have backed up my files from my old vista laptop onto my netac hd. Are you saying that I cannot transfer these to my new laptop?

How did you back the files up? did you copy them over to the drive or did you use a program that may have encrypt your files into one file.
