help! Problem with backup and restore

K
#1
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?

"help! Problem with backup and restore" isn't enough info to go on,
idiot.

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.
