    I just upgraded to XP Pro and am currently trying to reload the File and Transfer wizard but keep coming across a problem. I used two iPods to back up through the F.A.S.T Wizard and when using them to reload the data. after loading disk one it begins to ask for disk 2 (ipod 2), i plug it in through USB and it tells me it is not the correct disk 2. The first one works fine but it won't load it from the second. I can view the file from the Ipod in my computer so i know its not corrupted. The information is from a hard drive that was just reformatted and nuked. How do I get FAST to accept it and read the file. I even changed the drive letters to make them the same , different , but didn't make a difference.

    Create a folder on your hard drive . . copy both of the files from the iPod into that folder, then point the FAST wizard to that folder

    I copied both the files into a new folder on my C:/ drive and ran the wizard, but it does not recognize the folder as having the files. It says "The location that you specified does not contain stored information. Please enter a valid drive" What else should I try?

    I downloaded fastconv but need help on the command line. The files are usmt2img.dat and usmt2img2.dat , do these need to be converted to normal compression because they were saved to removable drive or are they ok.

    Beats me . . never had to do it . . I'd guess they would not need decompressing, but it's only a guess . . You could back them up somewhere and play with them

    Ok well I've been trying to get the command to work but haven't had any luck yet. Can someone write it for me for the extraction tool. The two files are " USMT2IMG and USMT2IMG2" They are located right on the C: drive inside "FastBackup" folder. They are the only two files inside the folder and the folder is directly inside the c drive. I want to save them on the c drive under a new folder called "dest" I also will use the "TEMP" on the C drive as the temporary folder if it is needed. I dont think there is anything that needs to be excluded. Can you write it for me based on that?

    Whaqt are the names of the two files you created?

    Try renaming the folder you put the two files in to: USMT2.UNC

    Then retry the FAST Wizard
