I have a backup I'd like to restore. I made it with Simply Safe Backup and no longer have that software. I'm wondering if there is another backup/restore software that can restore MCY files or how I might go about finding a copy of the software to do a restore? I don't know that if I find the software if it'll run on windows 8...I believe it ceased production circa 2005.

Hi Carolyn,


Are you trying to do a full image restore or are you trying to restore a few files?


If you are trying to restore your complete computer image, I don't know what options you have. It looks like the last supported operating system for running Simply Safe Backup was Windows XP.


If you only need to restore a few files, you could create a Windows XP virtual machine and install Simply Safe Backup. Come to think of it, if it was really imperative that you restored the complete image you could do that with a Windows XP virtual machine too.


As for finding a copy of Simply Safe Backup, it looks like  you might be able to download the installer from the Way Back Machine.


I'm sorry I'm not particularly familiar with that program, so my suggestion may be seriously more involved than it could be.

oldapps and oldversion COMs might have it.
