Have standard desktop running vista. Crashed and would not reboot so used the factory reset CD. I back up my PC on an external drive every Friday so i have all my files backed up. Problem is i cant restore them to the pc. Ive tried advanced restore/backup made on different computer etc. The pc recognizes the restore points date and time but not the backup location? If i press ahead with the restore based on the restore point and choose "restore everything in this backup" it starts asking about different user names etc? The files transfer onto the hard drive but sit in the one folder? should they not all restore to the system? e.g. Itunes restore to my desktop etc?
Can anyone help and give me a step by step guide to how to restore my backups after the pc is factory restored?
