    im having some very painful problems with my computer. i had to reformat my system so i made a backup using the HP recovery manager which backed my files in an external hardrive and they are names as Backup.001.exe and backup.002.fbw etc until 005

    after i installed a fresh new vista i execute my backup.001.exe and when it tells me to click next it freezes for a minute then its back to normal and the next button dont work... (the next button does not take me to the next step of restoring, it stays in the same page)

    the next button is active but does not take me to the next step so i cannot back my files up... i need help badly.. there is atleast 2 years of data in those backup files... i cannot get them running

    i have Windows Vista Ultimate with 3 GB RAM



    please help

    thank you

    I can reply OK, but I don't know if I can be of any help. I have not yet been forced to use my darling HP Recovery.

    This thread is a a bit confusing, but contains at least two possible solutions. Post # 2 says to change the names of the .fbw files beginning with 010 by adding a leading zero to the number part. But it's not clear to me if that was tried by the OP. Post # 11 says to copy each .fbw file to a separate DVD, and restore that way. This seems promising.

    I found this information with a web search for "fbw files" (w/o the quotes). If necessary, do your own search as there are a lot more hits, which may have better info. And, good luck, and let us know what happens.
