Desktop Back Up



I backed up my desktop according to instructions onto a back up drive. I
have word, excel docs and folders with pictures in them on my desktop. I
have since then upgraded from XP to Vista on my laptop and now after placing
all those docs and folders onto my new system back onto the desktop they seem
to be pointing to nowhere. When i try opening a doc I get the error message,
" the network connection or drive that your shortcut refers to is
unavailable..." These are critical docs and am not sure what to do...




Here's a thought. If you can access an XP machine, restore the files to
that machine, then zip them and copy them to other media: dvd, flash drive,
etc. You should be able to copy the files from the media to the laptop.
