If you want to recover Windows Vista factory settings, go to "Control Panel", then "Backup and Restore Center." There you can choose to restore your operating system using system restore or to restore your system from a previously saved restore point.
This might be one of those programs that must be installed in order to work. I would imagine that you must install the program and have it do a restore. Some programs keep a record of the backup on the hard drive. When you upgraded, the record might have been destroyed. If this is true, your backup software will have a utility to rebuild the index of the backup so it will work.
Hi,Use the backup and restore feature in vista and copy all the files to an external drive or DVD.Attach that drive or insert the DVD to the windows 7 computer.use the restore feature to restore the files. Thanks
MFT stands for Master File Table. NTFS (New Technology File System) uses it in order to record references of all files and folders of the corresponding volume. It is the most significant metadata structure of NTFS volume. It is the point from where NTFS installed system starts from to access any file. Any corruption caused to MFT will lead to Data Recovery routine. When MFT gets corrupted, user may fail to access files and carry out usual operations like renaming, deleting or opening the file with an error similar to: “H:\ $MFT is corrupt and unreadable. Please run the chkdsk utility.”
The error is specific to Windows XP and 2000. Users can also encounter the same error message as a Windows pop-up balloon at the lower-right corner of computer screen.
To resolve the issue, we need to first take full data backup and check for its consistent status. If media fails to restore data or the backup operation faces some difficulty, Data Recovery Software will be required to recover.
We can start Recovery Console by starting our system using the Windows operating system disk.
We can press R to select the repair option on the Welcome to setup screen.
We need to specify Administrator password, if there is no administrator password just press Enter.
We can then use chkdsk /H:Drive Letter:through command prompt and try repairing the damaged MFT.
Chkdsk /H: acts upon the file system and attempts to repair the damage. But it can cause more damage if it fails. In such cases, we need to format the drive and restore data from backup. If backup has not been efficiently taken or can’t offer full restoration, Data Recovery applications can help.
Yes it is. But it used together with the Windows 7 Backup and Restore Center (Control Panel - Backup and Restore). If you set up the backup setting in this option, make a backup, and create a restore disk you will be able to restore your system in the event of a problem. Please note that it will restore the system as it was on the day you made the backup.
