I recently backed up my files from my last computer which was running windows xp onto an external hard drive using the files and settings transfer wizard. The files were compressed onto my hard drive as .dat files. Now, when I attempt to restore the files onto my new computer running windows 7, the files are not recognized under.
My last computer is crashed and out of commision. I do not know which service pack it was running.
Any tips on how I can recover my old files?
