    I upgraded from Paragon version 10 free to version 10.2 free. My backups are on an external USB hard drive. Version 10.2 can only see the backup it made. I would like to restore a previous version backed up by Paragon Backup 10.1, but the new 10.2 version cannot see the older backups. What to do?
    I'm in Windows 7 premium 64 bit.

    How do you mean it can't see them?

    If you no longer have the archive database from the previous version - the new version won't automatically know where they are.

    To populate the new database, click archive view, rt click and click add archive, and browse to the archive.

    Otherwise, fire up Restore Wizard, click "Switch to File View", browse the drive(s) to the archive and click on the .pbf

    If you are using the boot cd, you need to browse for the archive anyway. ( Run it off now from within the Paragon program, if you haven't already) - click Tools > Recovery media builder in Paragon main window.

    Hope it helps.
