Hi all ,,, i have come accross this problem trying to restore some files i lost,,, i used the backup and restore in vista home prem to make file and documents backups,,, now im trying to restore some lost files and when i go into the restore center. When turning on the external drive my system recognizes it, however when navigating to Control Panel/System and Maintenance/Backup and Restore Center/Restore files from backup/and then to Restore Files I receive a yellow yield icon with an exclamation indicating that "There are no backups available on this computer". when i look in the ext hdd they are all there, i can see them,,, am i doing something wrong or when i made the backups did i do somehing wrong then?? The external hdd is formated to ntfs.
thanks,,,,,,Ian.

Not much help, but some links to possible solutions:

I'd also suggest checking Event Viewer for more information on the exact error that is generated.

Can you direct the dialog in the last screenshot to look in your K: drive? Click on Computer in the left hand pane, then double click on the K: drive?

FWIW - I'm way outta my depth here. I've tested this feature once, and then abandoned it in favor of Acronis True Image (which I'm comfortable with).

Hi, I'm not sure if this will help but it worth a try . Open the " Computer " and right click on the K drive , select properties , then Security tab , find your user name and click on edit , add the check marks for Allow , if you place it in the full control they will all be added , click apply and ok , reboot and see if that helps .

Hi, Try this >> start the Backup status and configuration , then select Restore Files, then Advanced store , click Continue with premission . Have it on " Files
from the latest backup made on this computer " click Next, Click Add Folders, now on the left side of the screen select " Computer " , then click Add , then click next and you should see your backup with the option to select start restore . See if that helps
