Hi folks...hope you all can help. I just had my HD crash. I bought a new one, re-installed windows and now I am prepared to restore my images from DVDs. Originally my boot disk will not read? Kept saying Hard Disk not found...really, it's brand new and is working fine? How do I even get that to restore? I tried then to reinstall by using just the DVDs with no success. So from reading on previous posts I figured restoring from DVDs was not a good idea. My first move was to copy all DVDs to my HD. (some DVDs read "cycle redundancy" and unsuccessful...good thing I made two copies!) Now I'm stuck again. What do I do now? I tried restoring from images from HD and it keeps giving me a screen saying processes are using the files? It allows for 3 options...retry, reboot, and back. Please help me here! It's bad enough to have my HD crash, but now not being able to restore my backups is excruciatingly painful.
