Protected content migration error with Easy transfer after Win 7 insta
I upgraded my husbands computer from Windows Vista to Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit. Did a full backup under Vista to an external drive, and also used Easy Transfer. Wanted to do a clean install and format the hard drive due to past computer problems. All went fine until I used easy transfer to put the ''old''files back onto the computer after the new Win 7 install. I'm getting a ''protected content migration'' error,asking for a password. My husband did not have a password on the old user account,but just to be sure we have tried every password that we have used. No luck with any of them.
How do I know what it is that we no longer have access to?
Is there anyway for me to recover access to these files that are supposedly password protected?
Should I do anything as drastic as just doing a full restore back to Windows Vista from the backup copy and change anything and then start over?
Any help would be completely appreciated. Thought I had been so careful,and was very prepared for any issues.......
Both the backup and the easy transfer files are stored on an external hard drive,just FYI.
