    Hello, I am faced with a real big problem. Recently I've lost all my data due to a RAID problem and had to use a full system image backup I was able to make before the crash. Here's the catch: I use a Core2Quad with 2 SATA drives on RAID 0 and Vista 64 ULTIMATE. I have the windows installation DVD. Since my backup is on a USB HDD I plug it in, windows system restore finds the backup image. However, when it should start to copy the files a error message appears saying I can't restore my backup because it was made on a X64 system and my computer is a X86 system. How come?:mad: Has my processor mutated or what? I really cound't find a way to bypass this and start the backup. Please, any suggestions would be greatly welcomed.

    Have you tried a different USB port?
