I have been using the standard Vista Ultimate backup/restore utility. The backup has been to a separate hard disk on the system. I had a total C: hard drive failure, so purchased a new drive, reinstalled Vista and attempted to recover my files. After much experimentation I finally got the restore software to recognize the backup file set.
However, when I try to recover all files the following error message is given
"The backup file could not be found. Check your hardware configuration or restore from a different backup. 0x8100001A"
Very frustrating to trust in backup/restore, but get no cooperation from it!
