Windows 7: W7 Professional restoring to W7 Home Premium - cyclic redundancy check

W7 Professional restoring to W7 Home Premium - cyclic redundancy check

Hi there,

My apologies if this has already been covered elsewhere on the forum, I'm sure that someone will have had at least a similar issue before but I did a few searches and couldn't find anything that helped.

Firstly I'm not even sure what I'm doing is meant to be possible. My old laptop (HP dv1111ea running 32bit Windows 7 Professional) Gave up the ghost. I have a backup on a usb-powered external HDD which if I remember rightly includes system files as well as my user files (never been any other users) Now I have my new laptop (Sony Viao running 64bit Windows 7 Home Premium).

I have a second external HDD and have taken a backup of the new machine, I now essentially just want my pictures and documents from the old restore, that is the only thing on there of value to me, but they are very valuable. Is it possible to grab just this file and that out of the backup? I don't really want to restore the whole thing.

My concern manifests in that I don't know if it is possible to restore from a 32bit system to a 64bit system?? I presume, going between Professional and Home Premium is ok.

Anyway, upon trying to restore I get through to finding and selecting the backup and clicking 'ok' then the computer thinks about things for a bit and returns the following message:

Quote:
Windows was not able to load the selected backup for the following reason:

Data Error (cyclic redundancy check). (0x80070017)

Verify that this location is valid and try again, or consider choosing a different backup.

Answers and a way to get my files from that backup would be much appreciated. I'm fairly sure that the old HDD, from the laptop that broke, is toast, so this backup is the only record of my old files that I have.

Thank you.

cyclic reduncancy check normally means there's an error on the disk. It's some kind of hash-check.
Is it a normal"Windows 7 "system image backup"? or Windows 7 backup? Or did you made the backup with special software?
Please explain

Ahh, yea, sorry, I should have mentioned.

It is just with the backup and restore suite within windows. I didn't use any 3rd party software or anything. It's a normal windows backup file.

32bits or 64bits... no problem
home premium or professional... no problem.

First perform a chkdisk to detect disk errors!
so do:
chkdsk/f x:
replace x with actual drive letter of partition where backup is located. Do this from Elevated Command Prompt
be sure no files are opened on that drive

Okay, thanks for helping me out. As far as I understand it the results of the chkdsk operation were that Windows couldn't find any problems but I shall paste in the entire blurb in case you can see something in it that I can't:

Your drive is working fine!! I assume you backup files (actually zip-files) have some crc checking as well(?) or the catalog with the file locations.

I'll invetsage that

uhhmm-.. sorry, I'm not sure what you are asking here. Do you mean check event viewer for information on the error? If so, I just tried again and can't see it in event viewer, which log would it be in? I don't know any other kind of event log that would help me out here.

Perhaps you could offer more specific instructions on where I can find the log you mean? Stored on the HDD where the backup is I only have the backup itself (type just says 'File Folder' are they really just fancy zip files?) and I have a 'MediaID.bin' file, that is all that is on the external HDD.

go into Elevated Command Prompt
and do:
DIR X:\
replace X with actual drive letter of partition where backup is located.
maybe you have to do:
DIR /ah X:\
this shows you hidden files as well.
Do you see mediaid.bin and a folder called YourComputerName.[some extension] ?
Remember the name so you can rename it back later if you want!

X:\
REN YourComputerName.[some extension] YourComputerName
Now you can browse that folder normally in explorer. You find a lot of zip files.
