hello helpfull person!
here's what happened- i had my hard disk of my fujitsu-siemens esprimo-mobile laptop (75GB) split up into 2 30GB sections and one small section that i set aside 2 put ubuntu on (linux) which i was playing around with b4. i wanted 2 have one large section tho instead of 2 small ones, so i reinstalled vista (home basic), which let me reformat the HD, and now i have vista on a 65GB section, and no ubuntu (yet). i had made a backup of my picture music and document files with the backup wizard. now i want 2 restore from that backup, and so i choose "advanced restore" coz otherwise it will tell me "there are no backups availabe on this computer". in the next screen the only option is already highlighted- "files from a backup made on a different computer" so i go on with that, it then looks for backup locations and i select the external hard disk where i put it. i then see 2 backups i made at different dates- i choose one, and then it says in the "backup location" column that "backup location is not available"- i still have the option 2 choose "next" tho, so i do, and then i can choose individual files (can't get that 2 work, and don't want 2 either coz i actualy want all the files 2 b restore) or restore everything in the back up, so i check that box, and go on and tell the wizard 2 put it in a file on the C disk seeing as the original location dissapeared when i reinstalled vista... (and that option doesn't work either)
it then tries 2 do something,i hear the external disk buzzing, but then the wizard tells me "the restore did not finish succesfully" with an error code that says "the backup file could not be found, check hardware configuration, or restore from a different back up. (0x8100001A)" and all i can choose then is 2 "finish"...
with another program like "memeo autosync" which came with the exteral disk (WD mybook, 320GB or something like that) i can see all the files in like 140 zipped files, which i can put on t hte pc, but then have 2 unzip 1by1... if i could get all the files within their original subfolders i would b very happy.
hope someone can help!
