How to Restore files from a backup

You can restore backed-up versions of files that are lost, damaged, or changed accidentally. You can also restore individual files and folders that you have backed up.

• Open Backup and Restore.
• To restore your files, click Restore my files.
• To restore the files of all users, click Restore all users' files.
• To browse the contents of the backup, click Browse for files or Browse for folders. To view individual files, use the Browse for files option because when you are browsing for folders, you won't be able to see the individual files in a folder.
• To search the contents of the backup, click Search, type all or part of a file name, and then click Search.

To restore a backup made on another computer
 You can restore files from a backup that was created on another computer running Windows Vista or Windows 7.
• Open Backup and Restore.
• Select the ‘Select another backup to restore files from’ link, and then follow the steps in the wizard that follows.

You can use wild card characters such as *.mp3 to search for all the music files that were backed up.
