Recovery Of Backup File With .qic File Extension

Recommended Posts

I backed my Xp Media system using Roxio backup software. The next day my system crashed and the hard drive required reformating. My attempt to restore the backed up files was unsuccessful because the file extension had some how become .qic and could not be loaded.

 

Any thoughts on how to retrieve these data?

 

Thanks

There are two depending on what application and what version you have.

 

It would have been a big help if you would have posted that you used Back-up My PC (BUMP) or Back on Track. Please take the time to provide as much information that you can in order to get the best possible and quickest answer. You could have also posted in the correct part of the forum and people could guess from there.

 

The one in EMC 10 ( possibly also in EMC 9)is Back-on Track. You would use the "Restore" utility if you used that. I googled for that extension and all the information points to a Restore function regardless of program.

.QIC files, sounds like you were using Back Up My PC? If so, then there's no "some how become" part to it, that's how the backup started. I confess I've never used it for a restore, but my recollection is that there's a diskette, or set of diskettes you make that can be booted from to do the restore. Did you do that part? If not, you'll need a working system (Windows installed and BUMP installed) to either 1) make the restore diskettes, or 2) use that installation to restore the .QIC file(s) to another HD.

 

So, give us a good starting point with a bit more detail as SKNIS requested.
