    I stored my C drive on CD with nero backup utility before taking my hard drive to a new computer. I was unable to get up and going without a format and XP Pro reload. Now, for the life of me, I can't figure out how to restore my files. I'm using Nero OEM Suite 3, with Nero Express 6, and Nero backitup. I go to the the restore backup function in Nero. I insert the last disk. In the area that say select back up information I click on the folder to the right and go to the d: drive and I find 2 files. One is a folder the other has a symbol I am not familar with. I click on the one with the strange symbol and it goes to the bottom area where you have the drop down area and then I click open and it puts it back in the select backup information area. It reads 20060301_230421_malia allgaier.ndi. Then I click the button that says Restore to a selected path and put in c:\backup. Then I click the next button and it has the c: with what they call a tick mark next to it. If you click on the + symbol next to it it opens all the folders on the disk. I wanted to start out with just 1 item just in case I goofed something up. So I unchecked everything but 1 program. It told me to put in disk 1 so I did it read it and then it told me to insert the disk labeled Incd. I aleady have Incd loaded but I tryed putting in my suite disk and that did not work. At one point I did something and it started loading everything. It started with disk 1 and then asked for 2. I was not sure what I was doing so I baled out. I can go to my c: drive and find a folder labeled backup. I click on that and then it shows a c folder. You click on that and then it shows all the programs that were on my computer but there is nothing in the file size. Could this be causing the problem? I did try several different programs and could not get any of them to load. Also, how do you get your thread title to appear in bold?
