File Restore Problem


K

Kevin

About a month ago, I made a backup of my files using Vista Ultimate's
(64-bit) Backup and Restore Center to another computer on my network. This
was NOT a complete system backup -- just a backup of files. Subsequent to
that, I erased my system's hard drive and reinstalled Vista Ultimate 64-bit
and then used the Restore functionality to restore my data files. Everything
was fine to this point.

Subsequent to that, two things in my system changed:

1. System board was replaced with an identical make and model by HP (I
still have the same hard drive. The data on the hard drive was NOT affected).
2. Installed Vista SP1. From all appearances everything went fine here.

Now, however, Vista does not seem to be able to recognize that the backup
exists. In the Advanced Restore browse window I can navigate to the
appropriate directory and catalogs. I can see the zip files and mediaID file,
but Restore continues to tell me that it cannot find any backup sets. I had a
second copy of the backup files on a USB hard disk and connected it directly
to my computer and I get the same error.

I can manually open the zip files in the backup set with no problem.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Mark:

Thanks for responding. I took ownership of all of the backup files and
folders, but Advanced Restore still does not recognize them and I continue to
get the error message that it does not find any backup sets. I can see the
files when I am browsing in Advanced Restore, but for whatever reason it does
not recognize the files.

What could be causing this? Do you know of any issues of this kind related
to SP1 or due to the fact that my motherboard was changed? That would be
rather counterintuitive if somehow Vista refuses to use the backup because of
those issues. An obvious reason for needing to restore would be if the
motherboard died and needed to be changed or because something went wrong
during the installation of a service pack.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Kevin
