    Well here's the problem I am running Windows XP and did a re-install because of several problems. I DID do a back up of the files I wanted to keep before the re-install. :confused:My question is this....For the back-up copy, I stored it on my External Hard Drive. Does anyone know how I can retrieve my back-up material to put back on my computer now that it is fixed again?

    I also have checked and in My Documents there is nothing...(of course since I did a clean install) is there anyway for me to transfer the backed-up info to the My Documents folder on my computer without having to do them all manually one by one? Please advise anything would be helpful...thanks :D DeAnna
