Rescue and recovery restore after OS upgrade?

Hi all,

 

I decided it was time to upgrade the OS on my T60 (type 8743) from Vista to Win7.  I used Rescue and Recovery to back everything up to a NAS.  Before starting the OS upgrade, I verified I could restore individual files from the newly created backup.  After doing a clean install of Win7 and installing RnR 4.31,  RnR will not list the backup when I point to it using the network option. 

 

Is RnR not showing the backup because it was made with a different OS?  Does anyone know how I can get RnR to read the data?

 

Thanks in advance,

-Marc

What version of RnR did you use to backup your data?

If not listed on RnR 4.31 (only for Windows 7), you can get the RnR boot disc from other computers (or via Virtual PC) to use RnR (compatible with version you used) to restore your data.

I didn't notice what version I used to create the backup, but I'm guessing it was 4.23.  Would a database written with RnR 4.23 not be compatible with RnR 4.31?

 

Thanks,
