Hi i backed up 42 gigs of files on 10 DVD's because i wanted to format my laptop (which i ended up doing) to install windows vista and now i cant seem to restore my files...any help will be appreciated thank you.

 

I'd like an answer to this question also. I've got dozens of backup DVDs created with Backup My PC Deluxe 2006 and no way to restore them under Vista. Will EMC 9 under Vista restore BUMPv6 backup files? If not, when will there be a BUMP for Vista?

 

Thanks,

Wayne

The only program in the EMC 9 suite that can restore BUMP backups is the BUMP application. Since it's not Vista compatible yet, then No EMC 9 cannot restore BUMP backups on Vista at this time.

 

When will BUMP be Vista compatible? No idea. Haven't seen any posts here on the User's Forum regarding it. You could try contacting Sonic/Roxio and ask them.

Which of the backup applications did you use to create the back up? There are several ways of creating backups in EMC 9.

I've been using BUMP, in all it's incarnations and owners, back to the Win 3.1 days. I firmly believe it is the best backup program out there (as I test most of them every few years). It infuriates me that Roxio has dropped the ball on this. Which is only componded by the fact that it is grouped with emc9, which is supposed to be Vista compatible. I found no indication in their literature that BUMP wasn't compatible (since I own it, I know better). This is false advertising and they out to be fined, or something.

I agree that there is nothing on the EMC 9 info pages about BUMP '06 not being Vista compatible (at least I couldn't find it either). It would be helpful if they listed the sys requirements for the included products, not just the v 9 parts of the suite, or at least note for each of them what OS they are compatible with. Looking at the BUMP standalone requirements, it does only list only XP and W2K as supported OS's.

Roxio hasn't been Vista certified for the BUMP program yet. It is taking a little time to get EMC 9 MS Vista certified as they are not getting just one or two of the programs in the suite certified, but rather getting ALL of the suite certified. Hang tight and be patient. It's just a matter of time when the entire EMC 9 suite of programs will be certified. This is the best information we have so far.

So, in other words, it's just a blatent lie! How f***ing ignorent of them to say it's Vista compatible, when it's not!! But it wouldn't be the first time for them to try to get away with stuff like this, now would it. What government body due you complain to about this, other than the BBB?

Try the fact that parts of the suite ceased being compatible when MICROSOFT put out patches that wrecked them.

 

EMC9 was Vista compatible up until the early hours of Vista being released - then MS screwed everything up

 

As you were told earlier, this is being worked on by both MS and Roxio and when it's ready, it will be ready. None of us here work for Roxio so none of us can give any time frame

I used BACKUP MYPC but when i try to use the restore wizard to recover the files from my DVD's is says:

 

Restore from: (0ption) File

 

c:\Backup MyPC\MyBackup 00001.qic

 

 

when i click next it says cannot find specified file or path name are incorrect... i tryed looking for the file everywhere on my hard drive but i cant find it. Is there another way to recover the files because they are all hidden on the DVD.

 

I would think the reason it doesn't find it is that it's looking on your harddrive for the file.Try changing the drive letter to match your DVD drive and see what happens.

That doesn't excuse them from lieing about it being Vista compatible. They are trying to decieve the public! This is illegal!!!

 

And, BUMP (which this thread is about) was never Vista compaitile during pre-release.

 

It wasn't said earlier that both MS and Roxio were working on this. Roxio is applying for Vista certification. This means Roxio, and only Roxio, is working on this until it meets the predetermined standards set out by Microsoft. Other companies, such as Nero and Genie Backup Manager, have programs that work with Vista. Historically, Roxio has always been extremely slow when it comes to system compliance. I just wish they hadn't taken over BUMP, as it's my favorite backup program (and Roxio hasn't changed a thing to the basic program since they acquired it).
