The upgrade instructions for Windows Vista says to backup my files before
running the upgrade. In the "Advanced restore" dialog box (screen shot
attached) there is a link for "How do I restore files from backups made
using a previous version of Windows?" If the Windows Vista upgrade ends up
wiping out my files, as Microsoft expects might happen, this would be just
what I need. However, when I click the link, I just directed to Microsoft's
general Vista home page with no links about backup, and when I search from
there regarding backup, nothing about previous versions of Windows is found.
Where can I find the instructions for restoring files from backups made
using a previous version of Windows?
The backup utility in WinNT4, Win2K and WinXP was a very workable and
reliable backup solution, that combined with Windows scheduler met my backup
needs, and I knew that I would be able to restore all my old backups. I
have always been disappointed with third party backup solutions that store
my data in some proprietary format and holds my backed up data hostage for
upgrade fees. I have been recommending to my clients that they use Windows
backup. Please, please, please bring the good ol' Windows backup back in
