I managed to get an HP backup of a failing computer, using the HP backup and restore manager. At the end it said the backup was successful. Then, that machine died completely. Now when i try to restore this backup (12GB) onto the new machine, it says it is not a valid backup, maybe corrupt or may not be the first disk of a multi disk set. It is stored on my new hard drive in about 20 630mb "STC File"s. It's softThinks v1.0. Any ideas?

Sounds like your backup software has made 20 CD images and stored them on the target computer. Have you tried using the "HP Backup and Restore" program to reconstitute the image(s)?

I guess it took the whole 12 GB and broke it up into CD sized bits, yes. The error message is from HP Backup and restore.
