I use XP Professional and used the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard
to save my files and settings to a network share before reinstalling my
machine.

When I run the wizard again to reinstall settings, and point it to the
required folder, I get the error:

"The location that you specified does not contain stored information.
Please type a valid folder path into the edit box."

The folder structure has the following format:

Settings <- folder I created
USMT2.UNC <- folder created by the wizard
IMG00001.DAT
status

Can anyone tell me why the settings are not being picked up?

Thanks,

P.
