The Storage Team Blog about file services and storage features in Windows Server, Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7.
I'm excited to announce two upcoming chats on some of the popular Windows Vista features owned by my team. On July 10, we'll answer questions about Offline Files in Windows Vista. On July 11, we'll answer questions about Backup, Complete PC Backup, System Restore, and Shadow Copies in Windows Vista. It's been awhile since we did our chats during the Windows Vista beta, and the team is looking forward to chatting (via text!) with the greater community now that Vista is released. I hope you will join us to ask questions and give feedback about these technologies.
You can add these to your calendar by visiting the TechNet Chat Calendar. We'll be sure to post the transcripts here as well.
See you in July!

Have you got a burning question about anything related to the backup technologies in Windows Vista? Perhaps
I have the same problem... I have a DELL XPS 420 with a Maxtor 250GB ext hard
drive... I did a 'Complete PC Backup' to B: drive (The ext Maxtor)
Next, I rebooted and used the system repair from the boot menu... this
formated my hard drive and set everything back to the DELL factory
defaults... re-installing Windows Vista Ultimate, Office 2K7, and all the
other DELL junk...
Now, I'd like to restore the computer to before the DELL repair... the files
are all still on the B: drive, I can see them there...
However, when I go to 'Restore files' -> 'Advanced restore' -> 'Warning -
Continue' -> only the 'Files from a backup made on a different computer.' is
enabled and already has a tick in the radio button -> 'Next' -> 'Looking for
backup devices...' -> I select B: drive -> and it tells me "Windows cannot
find any backup sets on the selected device"
I would appreciate any help with getting my files back...
