I have upgraded to windows 7 from vista and have a problem with the system back up and install. I made a full system back up of windows vista to an external hard drive. I can not find a way to restore these files to windows 7?? I have tried the back up restore wizard and help topics but cant find a way. Please can anyone help.

Do you have a windows.old? You could get them from there. I would suspect that the Vista backup only works with the Vista restore. You can try to pick them one by one from the backup folder, but if I remember right, the Vista backup gives numbered names to the files so that they are not easy to identify.
