    help! Problem with backup and restore

    I purchased a WD 500 GB external, and used windows backup. It worked
    fine. I was planing to return my laptop for repairs because it was
    making funny sounds, so i deleted all my documents/music/pictures and
    so on. When i went to restore everything, I got a pretty nasty
    problem.

    everything was restored, but stored on the F: drive, which is the
    external. when ever i would start up the computer, without the
    external plugged in, it would give me an error saying that the desktop
    wasn't found and that it was in different folder.
    there was also a problem with Microsoft office, which when ever i
    would open Word 2007 it would say "the office open xml file
    Normal.dotm cannot be opened because there are problems with the
    contents." then it would give me a second error message "Word cannot
    open the existing file. (normal)
    i would also get this same error when opening up any existing word
    file. when i would write things up and then go to save it, it says
    that "word has insufficient memory. do you want to save document one
    as rescued document 2?"
    i have a similar problem with itunes

    what do i do?

    It would seem that your problem is that you can not type your question when
    it would be helpful (to you) to do so!

    You guys are aware that the OP is more than a year old, aren't you?

    Ummm... Dave, "OP" is used to refer to the Original POSTER, not the
    original post.

    And yeah, I knew that the thread had died - actually, couldn't even
    find it on Google Groups when I first replied.
