I have a Hitachi Simple III portable hard drive. I have made a complete backup of Music, Video, Pictures, Documents and Mail. I would like to resstore this information to a different computer. The backup was made on Windows 7 OS, and I wish to restore it to a computer running XP. When I connect the drive to the XP computer, it says "canot find the files" but if I plug it back into the computer where the backup was made, it shows the backup with the correct dates. Somewhere in the procedure it gives the option to restore to same place or a different location, but if it can't find the files, I don't see how to progress. Any ideas?

Thanks.

Thanks for your reply. Where will I find recuva? We just can't get to the files backed up as the dates we did the backups do not show on the list. Only ones done on the other machine. dmrand agk
