    Default Restoring settings and docs after formatting

    I've just completed a full HDD format, having used Windows Backup utility to save my settings and documents on our network server. I formatted the HDD, restored the OS (Win XP Pro) using the original disks, followed (I thought) Backup's Restore wizard to put my settings and docs back in their original locations but have found that all 2.7GB is/are sitting smugly in my Documents and Settings folder in C drive. How can I now restore them to the places from which I originally wrenched them ?

    Wouldn't your time be better spent figuring out she was trying to help you by putting your post back up near the top.

    Metla. You beat me to it. Your response made my day. My wife just came in wondering what the hell I was laughing at.

    naughtyboy(s) are usually sent to their room to play by themselves and ponder their wrongs.......

    In case it has not sunk in yet naughtboy2, Laura was doing you a favour by "bumping" the post, to bring it back to the top of the list so others that may have missed it and could help would see it.

    At the very least you owe an apology to Laura, but as also suggested help could be harder to find after that remark.

    I wish I could understand the joke Metla is trying to tell. Could someone tell me why is it so funny? Since no one yet has posted anything useful that might help naughtyboy, "rebump".

    Ooops ! My unreserved apologies for my spiteful post, Laura -but, please if you're helping a (very) junior member, a note about what you are doing would be good. Even at this stage I'm not sure what you were intending. Thanks for your smacks, Tazz, Metha, Scouse, drcspy, godfather : you were right, I was wrong. Special thanks to you jameskan.
