In another thread: Malware broke through Sandboxie I explained how I had to reformat my hard drive. Also, with the eMachine computer that I have, it has a built in recovery program where I have the option of either completely replacing Windows(destruct) with a new copy of Windows...or to replace Windows with a new copy of Windows, but to also 'Backup' certains files and folders. Well, I really wasn't sure what the 'Backup' option meant, but I had a lot of music downloaded on my computer(fortunately from CDs), plus, I had certain documents that I wanted and some notes from my Notepad on my desktop.(I've gotten into a habit of putting notes with URLs articles in them that I want to read onto my desktop because I used to bookmark so many articles and not read them.) But anyway, I was hoping that the 'Backup' option would save my music and documents and desktop notes, however, I'm not sure how to access what I backed up. Now I opened 'My Computer' and saw a 'My Backup' folder that I clicked on, and there was a 'Music' folder in it that I clicked on, but nothing was in it. Also, there was a 'Documents and Settings' folder there too, but when I clicked on it, it showed me a folder with my administrator name on it, along with a list of folders that had the names of past Limited Accounts that I had. Well, I clicked on the administrator-named folder, but I got a dialog box that said that this folder cannot be accessed and "Access is denied." Now I don't know if anyone knows anything about this or if anyone knows anything about the 'Backup' option when reformatting a hard drive, but any information that you can share about this would be appreciated.
