Windows NT Backup Restore Utility for Windows 7 and for Windows Server 2008 R2

If you have a backup made with the backup utility, NTBackup, that comes with Windows XP, but want to restore files from the backup on a Windows 7 system you have to download the Windows NT Backup Restore Utility for Windows 7 and for Windows Server 2008 R2 from Microsoft. The Windows NT Removable Storage Manager (RSM) is no longer included in Windows 7 or in Windows Server 2008 R2, but this utility will allow you to restore files in a Windows .bkf backup file made with the backup utility on Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 to computers that are running Windows 7 and Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2.

There are versions of the Update for Windows 7 (KB974674) utility for 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows 7 as well as for all supported x64-based versions of Windows Server 2008 R2 and all supported IA-64-based versions of Windows Server 2008 R2.

The utility is distributed as an .MSU file, e.g. Windows6.1-KB974674-x86.msu for the 32-bit version for Windows XP. An .msu file is a Microsoft Update Stanalone Package file.

Image Backup with Windows 7 Backup Program

I recently upgraded my wife's laptop from Vista Home Premium to Windows 7 Home Premium. I installed a lot of applications on the system and decided it was time to get an image backup of the system. I've been using Symantec's Ghost 2003 program for image backups, but when I tried to backup the laptop with it, it aborted part way through the backup. So I decided to try the backup program that comes with Windows 7 to create an image backup. It was fairly straightforward to use and I didn't encounter any problems with it.
