I recently bought a 500gb wafer-thin external usb hdd and backed up everything on my pc using the Win 7 backup option-- for some reason it took 11 hours to complete !
Now I have decided to restore this backup, I am bit confused how I proceed.
There are 3 files shown on the external hdd :
MediaID.bin-- Windowsimagebackup, and Mike-Tosh. I selected the windowsimagebackup, which surprisingly took only a minute or two to complete.
But when I went back to my desktop, all my program icons were there, but clicking on any them resulted in a 'cannot find program' message.
I then took a look at the Mike-Tosh file and it contained dozens and dozens of zip files.
My problem is not knowing the how to properly restore a full backup ? can anyone tell me the correct procedure please ?
