Original title: Windows could not find a backup for this computer
i recently upgraded vista to windows 7 ultimate, to avoid having to re-install all my programs. however some programs didn't function properly, so i decided that i would backup my files do a clean install and then reload all my programs. well all my software progams loaded fine and are working, however when i try to restore my backup files by clicking on backup and restore it says "windows could not find a backup for this computer". i have the files backed up on my desktop and i have my computers (laptop & desktop) networked with an ethernet cable. now they backed up fine and i can see them but the computers cannot. so i click on the "select another backup to restore files from" and can browse the network and point directly to the backup files yet still get a message that windows could not find any backup sets. I also moved the entire backup set folder onto my laptop thinking maybe something was wrong with the network (even though i could browse right to the files) and my laptop still does not recognize them as backup files. any help would be greatly appreciated.
