I recently upgraded my MOBO and had to reinstall Vista. the windows.old folder is present with all the goodies in it. How do I import the file and settings into the new Vista install. This is a Vista to Vista move. I did a search in the OS help and windows.old was not found in the search!
Did you tried "Files and Settings Transfer Wizard" (for XP, under "Accessories - System tools") and point to that directory?
Im using VISTA and that does not exists. Apparently it was replaced with "Windows Easy Transfer" which wants you to have access to the computer you want to transfer from so you can prepare it for transfer. Pretty lame if you ask me that I cant simply import the files and settings from the windows.old.
