Restoring Windows 7 HELP!!!

I recently did a backup of my Laptops HDD(Laptop is running Windows 7 Home Premium) using "WET" and transferred all the files to my desktop which is also running Windows 7 Ultimate x64. Everything worked out just fine, but I don't really know where ALL the files went from my Laptop, along with my User Profile and ETC.

I did the backup because my laptop was running like crap and needed to do a system restore back to factory settings and just start from scratch.

Now what i need to do is get all those files i transferred to my PC back to my Laptop. Anybody have a guide or advice? thanks as im new to this sorta backup procedure.

In the report of WET you will see what was transferred to your desktop and then you can pick them up and make a new WET to your laptop.

This sounds like a dumb question, but here's the background. My daughter's XP laptop crashed (trashed hard disk that I doubt we can rescue much data from) and so we got her a Windows 7 computer. Unless we can rescue much of the old data from crashed XP, she's pretty much starting off empty. ...
