Data Restore Question (Vista Home Premium)

Posted: 01-16-2009, 06:01 PM
I recently encountered a harddrive problem on my Dell laptop. Dell sent me a
new drive (with factory image). At that point my system was marginally
stable but I had a full image backup (using Acronis) that was only 4 days
old. The only personal data that I cared about that was not covered by that
backup was some email, and I was able to do a Vista Backup of only my email
(at that point Acronis was complaining mightily about a multitude of bad
sectors, etc). I then installed the new drive and reloaded it with Acronis.
That restored my system to pretty much the identical state that it was in on
1/13.

When I went to restore my email files, Vista backup only acknowledges that
last Vista backup that I had done (1/5/09) before I did the full image save
via Acronis. Even though I can see the files in my backup drive (USB-2
harddrive) I am not able to Restore them.

My email store is pretty big - is there a way to get a couple days worth of
email files back (Windows Live Mail)?

Thanks.

Sorry - looks like Advanced Restore is the answer here.
