I had the original download of Windows 7 since last December, I was concerned it would quit after they offered the beta version so I followed instructions and did a backup on an external USB hard drive. I used the original Gateway restore disc and restored my laptop to the factory system with windows Vista. When I try to open easy transfer on the hdd I see the files I saved but when I browse to open them in easy transfer they won't open. I'm wondering if when I get my Windows 7 disc from Egghead if I will be able to restore all of my files, like PS 3 and tons of other programs. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I can be reached at [email protected]

The Easy Transfer is not designed to restore files to a previous version of Windows, its to migrated data to a Windows 7 install. If you were to get Windows 7 again then you should simply need to run the Easy Transfer program again to restore the files and settings.
