Re: vista docs transfer to xp pro
It depends on which type of backup you are talking about. If you did a
Complete PC Backup, then, no there is nothing you can do with this type of
Vista backup in XP, because it creates an image of the disk where Vista is
installed. If you performed a File Backup, this backup saves the files and
folders in standard .ZIP format and these zip files can be extracted with
any type of program including XP.
