My desktop crashed and I had to go to Win8, because there was nothing else immediately available. I also had a bkf backup on external hard drive. After searching the Microsoft help pages and finding no help, I found an old XP laptop and connected the
external hard drive to it. I was able to restore the backup files onto the external hard drive, then reconnect the hard drive to the Win8 desktop. That has worked OK so far.
