RC1 - "Restore Files" from backup does not work

    Hello,

    I installed RC1 and made a backup of my files (Backup & Restore -> Backup
    Files).

    I later had to reinstall RC1 because of some driver issues. I then went to
    restore some individual files from the backup (by clicking on 'Advanced
    Restore'). However, I am having the following problems:

    1) If I choose "Files from the latest backup made on this computer" I
    receive an error that the disk containing the backup is not accessible. I
    have to select "Files from a backup made on a different computer".

    2) Once I select that, I can choose individual files to restore. However,
    after I select those files the following prompt occurs:

    "The files you are restoring have security permissions for a user account
    which could not be found on this computer. The missing account is shown below.

    COMPUTERNAME\None"

    It then tells me I need to create an account with the same user name, or I
    can just restore the files without reassigning security permissions.
    Whichever option I choose, when I click 'Continue' the Restore program fails
    with the following error:

    "Microsoft Windows Backup has stopped working"

    How do I get past this? I'm really worried that I won't be able to restore
    all my files.

    Thanks.....
