Good Morning. A friend of mine had a old computer that died, It ran win 2000. She went a and purchased a new computer with Vista on it. Now the problem. She wants to take her backed files from windows 2000, which are on a floppy disk and put all her backed files into Her Vista. Vista will not recognize the files. The files end in a .oic Thanks for your help Jim

I do not recognize the .oic extension and neither does google.
Did she use a program that does a backup/restore function?
Did she do a copy and paste?

Please elaborate if possible.

Ok, I did a google search. QIC is a backup utility in 95,98, and me OS's.
XP's backup/restore utility will not bring them back. So I highly doubt that Vista will either.

Read THIS FROM MS

What I have found relates to using another 95/98/ me/2000 computer to try the restore. If successful, then you would have to locate the files and them move them (copy/paste) to the Vista unit.

I also found referances that some other software will read it, but I haven't found any yet. Roxio's "back up my pc" was one of them.

Found something that might help. http://www.cknow.com...hCartridge.html.

More reading http://xphelpandsupp...kup_files_i.htm.

Good luck and please let us know how you make out.

EDIT: I installed the trial version of "back up my PC" and clicked on restore and it was looking for a qic extension. This might work.
