Ive tried the method posted on another thread with TRANSDB.DAT. When the program (FASTconv) came to TRANSDB.DAT (I assume its the last file it wanted) it failed, and left me with all of the individual .DAT files in 10 directories: "00000 - 00009" and a "TRANS" Directory containing DB.DAT. I did this twice, but it fails at the end when it hits

Extracting: C:\tempe\TRANSDB.DAT Size: <whatever the file size was>"

I tried it once more but adding "/e:transdb.dat" to the command

oh, and the command im using is: fastconv /s:c:\usmt2.unc /d:c:\e /t:c:\tempe

Ive come to realize that the hexadecimal named .DAT files within the "00000 - 00009" directories are the actual files themselves, but havnt been given their original file names yet. I have all of those files, but it doesnt do me any good to have 32.5 GB worth of .DAT files and not know what any of them were named.

Might there be a way to bypass the extraction process from the original large 2gb .DAT files and just do the filename conversions?

I really need to have these files, 1 years worth of sourcecode for a project that was due to release last weekend (haulted due to the inability to get my files back, thanks a lot Microsoft) and 2 years worth of graphic projects and website templates that I designed (my entire career's portfolio)

Big help would be appreciated, thank you very much in advanced for anything that you can do to help me.
