BackOn Track, v13.0, was included with my purchase of Roxio Creator 2011 Pro in January 2011. Installed on an Dell XPS 8100 running Windows 7, 64. Always backed up to a secondary 300 gig harddrive (D:\). The primary 500 gig harddrive (C:\) has about 300 gig of free space. Due to a file corruption problem I had to restore Windows from the C:\ drive restore partition, after running the Dell DataSafe Local Backup to save data on the C:\ drive prior to the partition format and Windows System Restore procedure.
I repopulated most of my data on drive C:\ from the Dell DataSafe Local Backup. However, I am unable to Restore any of the backup files created by BOT. I thought originally, since I was restoring files from drive D:\, which has only about 50 gig of free space, back to their orginal location on drive C:\ that BOT was reacting to the drive D:\ space limitation. So, I copied several BOT backup sessions from drive D:\ to drive C:\ which has plenty of free space. Still, getting the same Disk Space Error.
I figure this has to be a simple setting problem, but can't figure it out. Years ago I use to use Zip drive backups. It always seemed that any time I needed to do a restore the Zip programs would be out of date. Then I went to Norton's Systems Works only to find that about every two years they would tweek their backup programs and not make them compatible with older version backups. So for me, it's like Deja vu all over again.
Thanks in advance on any insight you can give me to recover the few files that the Dell Backup didn't save.
