HDD Crashed so I bought a new computer

I began the process to transfer files to the computer.

It said I was about 3G short of space on the new computer, but allowed me start the restore anyway.  I was assuming that it would stop when full.  It did stop, but now I don't see ANY of the backed up files.

What should I do?

Re: HDD Crashed so I bought a new computer

Hi @DHart2,


As long as the restore said it successfully downloaded some files, those files should be on your computer even if the restore didn't complete fully. If you're having trouble locating those restored files, follow the steps in this article: Where to Find the Files Restored Through the Restore Manager


Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.
