Re: how do i retrieve back-up files
For you to open the files, you have to make sure you use a system that has the softwares instlled on it i.e autocad and alpha cam and with it you won't have problem. in as much as the files are in the drive, there is no problem. and you can save a file to the backup selecting the drive in the save or saveas option. or you move/copy already saved files into the drive using explorer. good luck

Why you do not save all hard drive data on other places before you try to do your stuffs?
So, just learn a lesson to make data backups on several drives in the future.
But, now, to rescue your drive data, you should firstly try some drive data recovery software and see whether your drive data is still recoverable, like: http://freeware-fix.blogspot.com/2013/03/external-drive-data-recovery.html
Simply scan this hard drive thoroughly and take your needed videos and files back as many as possible.
<p>Back up important files and programs a valuable need, even
for novice users. Use the Backup utility and Restore Center in Windows to
support it in the backup software programs, such as HP Quality Center. HP
Quality Center is software for use by quality professionals. Microsoft
recommends that you use an external hard drive to use the backup program to
save, but you can also backup to DVD, CD or USB stick. <br />
<p>1. Connect the external hard drive on your computer. <br />
<p>2. Click "Start" and "Backup and
Restore" in the search box. Click "Save and Restore" result. <br />
<p>3. Click the "Create Backup". Select the external
hard drive in the selection and click Next. Click the "Let me choose"
option to a file select window. <br />
<p>4. Select the "HP Quality Center" on the list, and
then click Next. Click "Save Settings and Run Backup" to start
backing up files from the software. <br />
You might need to get an older version of NTI Backup Now. I had the same issue. I was using Backup Now 4 which saved everything as .nbf.files. I downloaded a trial version of Backup Now 5.5 and tried to restore the files only to find .nbf files are not compatible with version 5.5!
I sent a rather facetious e-mail to NTI moaning about this issue and they sent me a trial version of version 4. If I were you, I'd do the same.
All my .nbf files are now restored.
Files are not backed up within Office itself. If you had the 360 backup configured to backup online, you will need to install 360 on the computer and then do a Restore from the backup module after you login to the Symantec website.
Did you backup online? Or did you backup on a second (external) drive? You can comment back.
Using Norton Ghost 9.0 is very good program to backup your System & Documents. You said the PC is dead then you want to restore back your System to a new PC. All you have to do is that Norton Ghost 9.0 CD is Bootable. Of course also your external hard drive are plug in it too. Manually you're going to open that Sv2i file to restore back again your old system but there are some programs that are not going to use. Like for example: System Drivers (Motherboard Driver, LAN, SOUND, etc.) but at least you have the Documents and the rest of the programs run again. I try it myself this kind of situation, I'm using Windows 2000 with Norton Ghost 9.0 version, and it's 100% works. Good luck! Hope i might give you some tip & idea. Tell me more about if you got a problem. Please rate me. Thank you.
However I can help you prevent it in the future.
Get a whopping BIG outside hard-drive for your backups.
Then you have ALL your back-up files on one continuous disk, instead of several.
You need a program that automatically backs-up only the files you have pre-selected, as an actual file and not an "Image".
Back-up such as Desktop, My Documents, Email, Favorites etc.
With "image" files you can not retrieve or copy and paste individual files from the archives, such as when you have accidentally deleted a good file on the computer.
Open Tally, press Alt+F3-Company Info, you will see Back Up link. Select & enter required fields (drives) where you would like to take back up
Go to company information- click backup - you can take backup on floppy or on hard disk with proper path. i.e make the backup (or any name) folder on suitable drive. But do not choose C: drive as you may forget when you are formatting the drive. Then you can copy the same folder on CD to open any where.
