How-to restore a .BKF file in Vista

The problem: you made a backup in Windows XP before upgrading to Vista and now you can’t restore your files. What are you to do? Simple, download the Windows NT Backup – Restore Utility and follow these simple steps to make your transition to Windows Vista easier.

  1. Enable Removable Storage Management in Windows Vista
  2. Install Windows NT Backup – Restore Utility
  3. Restore your files

What!? You expected a video or something showing you how to do this? OK, have a look at this:

If you’re a more advanced user, you could install Windows XP NTBackup in Vista by copying the following files from an XP installation to C:\Program Files\NTBackup\ on your Vista machine:

  • C:\Windows\System32\Ntbackup.exe
  • C:\Windows\System32\Ntmsapi.dll
  • C:\Windows\System32\Vssapi.dll
  • C:\Windows\Help\Ntbackup.chm
  • C:\Windows\Help\Ntbackup.hlp

The last two files aren’t necessary, they’re just help files, but you may want them just in case you forget how to backup your files. Create a shortcut to NTBackup somewhere and blammo, you’re in business.

Katrina Tribute Part 3

This week I’ll be playing some audio blogs I recorded in September 2005 when I went to Bay St. Louis, MS to help with the relief efforts after hurricane Katrina devastated the area. This is part three in the installments.
