Hello Everyone I had t reinstall my windows 7 Premium but before i backed up (i hope were my documents, pictures etc) any way it took two disks to complete, i have them sitting here now, but i dont know how to transfer them into the reinstall! I open one of the disks up and all I saw was of a bunch of WIM files. what are they and how can i get them installed on my reinstalled windows 7? Thanks

Hi tomsdct. When you said backup, what program did you use? I just do a simple copy to and from. Using a backup/restore program is for entire drives, and believing you can save space by having files compressed, when space is so little in cost, especially when using a flash drive, boggles the mind, Mindblower!

Hi,
I suggest that you move these files into a USB and then extract them to the new system using PowerISO.
hope this helps!
