You make a good point
zombie_master, do you mean you've backed up the data on another medium before you formatted (like on another hard drive) and now you're trying to backup data from that medium?
after i had reinstalled windows i wanted to backup my stuff and then format and start with a clean drive
...doesn't make sense
...Or are you trying to backup personal data now (after you've formatted and re-installed Windows) :freak: !?
