Trying to restore


Recommended Posts

My PC was running WinXP and had months of successful backups. HDD crashed so I installed a new one and decided to install Vista and also installed Retrospect Express HD v 2.5.125. I have launched it to try and restore My Documents however, there are zero (0) restore points available. I can see the backups on the NAS however, I can't figure out how to get them to restore.

Any help here is appreciated.

OK.. I figured this out... the issue was my actual machine name was different with the Vista install than the name my machine had with WinXP. I changed the machine name and all the backups became visible in RE HD.

What this kinda points out is that the 'Restore a backup from other computers' function doesn't work.
