Discussions for OneCare should go here:
From Instant Support on the topic "restore files" we have:
Windows Live OneCare automatically stores the restored files in the same place
they were originally located except in the following situations:
If the original files were located on a hard disk or partition that doesn't
exist on the destination computer, the restore wizard copies the files to a
special folder (usually C:\Restore_[date]).
If the backup files have the same names as files already present on the
destination computer, you can skip them or copy them to a special folder.
If the files were created with a user account that doesn't exist on the
destination computer, you're prompted to specify a location to store the files.
