I am having a major, and very confusing, problem. Hopfully someone can help... On April 13th I created a selected file back up to a external hard drive (Western Digital 60 GB USB 2.0) as a two part file totaling 5 GB, and re-installed Windows Vista Ultimate. At that time I decided not to restore the files and wait a few days to test the installation. I opened the back-up without any problem to remove files as I needed them and could transfer folders to my desktop. Four days later I decided to go ahead and restore all the files in the back-up to my documents........ Now for the strange part....... If I select the file through the recovery wizard it says the file is either not a valid true image backup file or the file is corrupted, however it will recognized the second part of the file and ask for part 1. If I attempt to explore the file it asks for a password, but I never created one for that file. I can explore part two and it shows all of my files, but if I open a file it closes widows explore and resets the desktop. If I move the file or folder it says there is not enough space.....I have 55 GB free on this drive. The same thing happens on both a machine running Vista Ultimate and one running XP Pro. I have tried to move the backup file from the external to my internal drive and the same thing happens. Any suggestions? I cannot lose this information.
