I have run a backup on a Toshiba Satellite a135-s2276.

This is Windows Vista Home Basic

I then restored the factory CD disk to clean it up.

The backup was run from Vista backup/restore program selecting Data files only.

Now that the system is restored and 102 updates installed, it says there is no backup file on this computer.

I backed up to a 1TB usb drive and can see the backup files on the drive.

What do I do now?

Chas

Managed to use advanced restore and it could see the Iomega 1 TB drive with the back up.
Problem solved
