i backed up my files to my "Wolverine" external hard drive (which is FAT32) using vista-"backup and restore" and it completed with no problem. Then I re-installed vista.
Then someone told me the backup has to be on a NTFS file system ??
The backup files are in many ZIP files on my external backup drive. They did restore to normal, but now the song files will not play:
"Windows Media Player cannot access the file. The file might be in use, you might not have access to the computer where the file is stored, or your proxy settings might not be correct."
and my favorites do not open:
"The target"" of this shortcut is not valid. Go to the internet shortcut property sheet and make sure the target is correct."
The only files that work normal are the pictures i open.
Is there anyway to fix this and make the restored files work? Did i lose all of my files, are they corrupt?
Also, I did get an error in restore saying the user account is different and something about permissions. I didnt name the account/comp the same name, didnt know I had to, but i did check the properties of the restored files and it shows my current new acccount does have all permissions to the files.
