No Backup image cannot be found Error

#1
I have just wasted 20 hours between 2 days trying to get my system restored.Once I had reinstalled vista and "ALL" of my programs and settings (4 hours total) and backed up to my external 120 GB USB Drive I then ran a test restore.Got the same error message,"No Backup image cannot be found,' even though I backed it up to the root of G: which is my external USB drive, and that is where I am pointing the restore from. Can anyone please help someone with a high level of frustration who does not want to deal with Microsoft directly?Thanks in Advance.Ray

I'm pretty sure that the 'backup' utility only works if you have Vista Ultimate. For us lesser mortals using Premium and the like, only System Restore will work like any kind of backup. You could get third party software of course and do it that way, sorry you've wasted all that time...:(
