also, when backing up files using easy transfer on my "old" computer, I performed the action multiple times and it saved as 2 copies, each had different amounts of data in them, of Windows Easy Transfer - Items from old computer2. ones is a easy transfer file, and the other is a MIG01 file which wont start windows easy transfer if i click it. the easy transfer file is about 4GB, and the MIG01 is about 3GB, and when i ran easy transfer it transfered 7.1GB. so did it include the MIG01 file even tho i cant open it with windows easy share?

ok, i see that files have been transferred to where they were on my old comp, but when i transferred all my pictures, some came back as (ex.) 100_1234(1). I know this is because there was already a picture with that file name, but it only did it for a few pictures. why did it only do it to some and not all?

It should restore it to the same folders as it was backed up from.

In Win 7 you have to remember that some locations are just nodes, and not actual folders, because the folders have been changed.

Do you know the folder the files were in originally? Have you done a search for them?

i feel like ripping my hair out, this is just real frustrating. I have a Libraries and Homegroup icon that randomly popped up on my desktop and they dont have a delete option. also, there was a control pannel icon that popped up with them on the desk top, but i could delete it, except if I go into my computer and search desktop its still listed there.
