hi, I instaled windows 7 and after playing around with it I decided to wipe out the entire HD and do a clean Vista install, but before doing that, I did backup all my file with the Windows Easy transfer application found in Vista and in Windows &. The file took a while to create and finally there it was safe in a external HD. After I installed vista again i tried to restore the *.MIG file to get my important files back, I tried several times and all I get is the following message." please select a valid file where your data can be restored from....... " I did all Vista updates thinking that it could fix the problem, but nothing. Does anybody can help me resolve this issue? These are important files to me and one more time I trusted Micrososft to handle this task, but unfortunately it fail. Any help will be gladly appreciated.
