Ok, this question is split into two parts.
1.) I recently had some sort of registry corruption or something, due to a virus, in my Win 7 Ultimate 64Bit and I had to do a clean install of the same OS again.
But before I had formatted my C:\ drive, I had taken a Backup of the 'Users', 'AppData' and 'ProgramData' folders to restore after the re-install.
I formatted C:\ and did a clean install and was about to restore my files when I thought 'What if the virus was backed up too?'
And that's the first part. Do viruses get backed up too when I use the Backup&Restore feature? Is there a way to scan my backup file? Is there any way to prevent viruses from getting backed up? Should I not restore my files? Is it enough if I have an active anti-virus shield to immediately detect the virus when I restore the files?
2.) As I was worried about the virus I tried restoring only a few, select, files and folders to their original location (stuff like custom themes, Firefox's bookmarks etc).
BUT I got this error...
And that was only 1 file. I tried with multiple files, single folders, multiple folders and taking ownership of the folder I was restoring to but nothing helps. I used the administrator account when I backed up and I am using the administrator account right now.
What is wrong??? How do I fix this?
Hoping for a quick reply,
