Hi, was there a resolution to the problem described in this thread. I am experiencing exactly the same problem and cannot seem to resolve it. Any help appreciated. The original thread is posted below.
"Hi, bear with me, it's a little complicated...
I'm trying to restore files from a Vista backup into 7, but, once they're restored I can't find them.
It only affects files that were in the various 'my documents', 'my downloads' etc folders on my Vista install - files from other partitions etc restore fine.
It seems as if the files are definitely being restored somewhere, because if I restore them again I get 'would you like to overwrite these files' dialogs. I've tried searching for the filenames after they're restored but they don't appear. I think maybe it's possible that 7 is restoring them under a different user (although my user name on 7 is the same as it was on Vista).
Is there any way I can view these files?
Many thanks "
