Windows 7: Windows 7: Unable to restore Backups

17 Feb 2014   #1

Windows 7 64bit Professional
Windows 7: Unable to restore Backups

I've looked online for the answer to this, but was unable to find it.

I have a backup that Windows 7 64bit Professional is unable to 'see'. I put it on my USB key, and here's what it looks like. I don't have the correct name of the computer, hence 'notknown'.


I get a blank window, because it is unable to find the backup, when I 'share' the USB drive, I am able to BROWSE NETWORK LOCATION...

But no matter what folders I select I keep getting the error window -

Any help would be greatly appreciated, because at this point, the .zip files seem to work, I am able to browse them, however, restoring the entire drive this way isn't feasible, because Windows 7 splits individual files up, and 'reattaching' them is something I don't think I can do manually...

Thanks for any help,
