My Vista business laptop died recently and I'm trying to restore the files from a windows backup I made before it died. I'm restoring these files onto a replacement laptop running windows vista ultimate. Unfortunately I'm getting the following error message: "The files you are restoring have security permissions for a user account which could not be found on this computer. Please use the control panel to create a user account with the same name. The security permissions on these files will be reassigned to that user account"
I have tried to rename the user account but without success "The user account [name] was not found for the following reasons "No mapping between account names and security IDs was done (0x80070534). Please ensure you create a user account with the same name."
I've tried forums and microsoft help pages without success. If anyone can help I'd be so grateful!!
