Windows 8 How do I restore files backed up with Windows 7

I have files backed up using the Windows 7 Backup and Restore utility. I have installed Windows 8 and want to restore files backed by Windows 7. How is this done.
Answer
Answer
Open the start screen and type "file recovery" to search then click the Settings category and open Windows 7 File Recovery.

You may need to click "Select another backup to restore files from" on the file recovery screen.
