    Need to restore files to Win 10 from Win 7 backup-is this possible?


    My folder is:
    MediaID.bin

    It has all my documents, photos, etc. from a PC that I converted to Win 10 and gave a family member. But I can't seem to get the file to open on my own Win 10 Pro laptop.
    Is there a program, command or process that will allow to restore all my files to this laptop?

    Thanks in advance,
    Jeff

    :)

    Win 10 repair disk unable to find Win 10 system image backup

    As a workaround to this issue, I have verified that by doing a system image backup from Win 7 and adding the Win 10 partition to the list of partitions (the Win 10 partition appears to be a "data" partition from Win 7 perspective) to be backed up by the
    Win 7 system image backup, I can then restore both Win 7 and Win 10 partitions. The main drawback is I have to restore the Win 7 partition in order to restore the Win 10 partition. I can choose to only restore the Win 7 partition, but not to only restore the
    Win 10 partition.

    As a side note, if I restore a Win 7 image backup made before I installed Win 10, then there's no option to restore "Windows 10" from either Win 10 or Win 7 repair. I'm wondering if or how a Win 10 repair would function if restoring to a replaced hard drive.
    If all of the partitions on a hard drive are included during a system image backup, then system image restore is supposed to be able to partition and format a hard drive as part of the repair restore. I have the impression that Win 7 repair restore can do
    this, but I'm not sure if Win 10 repair restore can do this.

    windows 10 update 1511 changed new computer to windows 7?

    Yes Windows 10 give you the Windows 7 backup ability, probably so that you can use a file backup created on Win 7 to restore said files to Win 10 but it also does create a backup & a system image of Win 10. In future updates this feature may change or be
    removed but I hope not.

    I upgraded from Win 8.1 - Win 10 & have Win 7 backup under control panel.

    You could try restarting several times to see if it kickstarts everything or see if you can uninstall the update.
