    After a major RAM/motherboard failure, I am now trying to rebuild my PC. Fortunately, I had done a backup to DVD shortly before the failure, using Nero BackItUp version

    However, when I tried to restore the backed up files, only 84 files out of 20147 were restored, with a message that said "Decompression of files failed". I am sure that the compressed files are still on the DVD, but for some reason I can't access them.

    Does anyone have any ideas about this please, particularly as to whether I can recover stuff like emails, favourites and a whole raft of other stuff.

    Many thanks
