  2. Having trouble restoring from a windows 10 backup to a new computer

    Hello Joseph, the only way I found to restore my files from file history was to open it directly from my backup drive and drill down through the folders to the actual backups and then copy and paste all of my required folders to my computers Documents
    folder. The only downside of this, apart from the extra time required, is that all of the copied files have an addition to their file name which contains the backup date and UTC time. I hope you have luck in restoring your files.

  3. Restore backup files on new computer.

    I was able to backup files to an external hard drive, however i cant seem to restore them to new computer. How do you do this. System restore doesnt see the files from new computer.

    -> A "File Backup" requires a "File Restore" to restore files and folders.

    -> A "System Restore" works only if you previously created an image of your installation.

    Did you do a file backup or did you create an image?

    What are the operating systems of the two machines?
