    Restore Files from Backup of Different PC ?


    I have an external hard drive that has two sets of backups (using Win 7 Backup & Restore). One set of backups is for my current PC (running Win10 after upgrade from Win 7) and another set of backups is for my previous PC (running Win 7). I'd like to look for something in the backups of the previous PC but I can't see how to get Win 7 Backup & Restore to access the older backups.

    Is this doable?

    windows-xp mobile backup.arc file extractor/restorer

    backup.arc is encoded quite differently from the PC Suite backuped .nbu file. May be Nokia will include the .arc as

    part of the .nbu file and left the .arc part restoring the same as a single backup.arc restoring.

    I got it to work. The Backup & Restore control panel has an option to restore from another backup. I had tried that but it never showed the other backup. It turns out that the backup has to be at the root level of the disk. When I moved it there it showed up and I could access it just fine. I don't know why that didn't occur to me before??

    Thanks,
    Larry
