    Restoring backup from 98se in XP? (XP)

    I updated my PC from 98se to XP, and performed a backup in 98SE. I wrongly assumed that the backup restore would be compatible (or backwards compatible) after I loaded XP. The extensions are not the same. Does anyone have a solution or a 3rd party solution that can convert?

    Thanks.

    Denise, Unfortunately no MS backup versions are comatible with each other. I believe your only solution is find someone with a win98 machine that you can use to restore what you need. Copy it to CDs. Then copy on your PC. OR, look at Install Win98/ME after XP is installed. Read the caveats thoroughly and be very careful with this option. This will alow you to dual boot and use Win98 to restore what you need. Then use XP to copy it to your main partition.
