    oops, I had My Documents folder anchored and now it is gone when I booted back to my main XP snapshot. How do I get it back??

    All of your files should be under a folder called Windows.old. When they were anchored and you created an empty snapshot, your Documents folder became visible in the new snapshot. Therefore Windows 7 treated it like a previous Windows install and moved everything into the Windows.old folder. You will probably need to move everything to a separate hard drive, partition, or USB drive boot back into XP and move it back. I do not anchor files on my C: drive because my Documents folder is always moved to separate drive or partition so I can't tell you if FDISR will anchor files correctly between XP and Win7.

    I have used FDISR to successfully transfer everything in a person's Documents folders from XP or Vista to Win7 by anchoring the folder before creating the empty snapshot. Then all I had to do was show them where all their documents, videos, pictures, music, etc were and show them how to copy them into the appropriate folders in Win7. Then, later, FDISR can be completely uninstalled from within Win7 (including the old OS snapshot).

    This works for most people since they let all their programs save and download everything into the default Document folders. Makes upgrading a breeze when they only have one partition on their drive.

    I m really interested in installing FD, i downloaded the Vista Recovery Disc, booted from CD/DVD Drive and selected :
    • Option
    • Select Command Prompt
    • F:\boot\bootsect /nt60 c:
      [*]Nothing happened: It says this cmd is not recognised as internal or external command.

    When i gave the dir cmd: the Disc contains folder ie.,
    • Proram files
    • User
    • Setup.exe
    • Sources
    • Windows
    I was under X:/Sources/
    so do i h' to give X:/Sources/boot\bootsect /nt60 c:
    or do i h to enter the E: or F: CD/DVD Drives then give F:\boot\bootsect /nt60 c: cmd....o_O?:doubt:

    Fixed it:

    is the default folder when we click the CMD PROMPT for RESTORE.
    thanks to houaus :: https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=233932&page=3

    Too bad i m on another PC, i could show the Snapshot to prove. i still think their should be another FD compatible for Win7,,,, what say!:blink:
