Restoring XP Data after Windows 7

If you have upgraded your system to Windows 7 and want to restore data from an XP backup you will not find the Backup Utility unable to open the backup.  Reason is that the file format changed and is incompatible between the two.  There is a solution, however, that was released with Windows Vista for restoring the data.  It doesn’t run on Windows 7, so if you have a Vista you can go that direction.  If not the next way is to run Windows 7 in XP mode.  Please read the link for information on the how-to restore the date.
