This time with the flash drive inserted, see if restore, choosing the drive, if it is recognised will find any files.
In the restore wizard CHOOSE advanced mode you should then if the backup.bkf file is recognised be able to open it and select what you wish.
DO NOT restore the whole backup file. YOU will have serious problems if you backed up system files etc,
ALSO do not choose original location.
Did you ever verify the backup.
What on properties, right click the flash drive is the nature of the file.

On that backup and restore is not included by default, but can be installed
You then backed up using the XP backup utility to a flash drive.
You then used the XP CD (or the Dell XP CD reinstallation disc) to reinstall Windows.
Therefore am I correct in presuming that all your original data from C Drive was lost, as the partition was formatted,.
Now you are trying to restore you backed up data to your newly installed Windows.
Am I correct please.
If so, depending on what backup you chose, either advanced backup and only backed up your personal data, or the FULL backup, determines how you must restore if you can.
YOU CANNOT restore a full backup from a previous installa\tion to a new installation.
That is why you must NOT choose the original location even if it would allow you to do so.
ALSO have you seen please the post from my colleague Wannabe1.
and finally when you say
I think I already did that.
what please happened - did they restore or did you receive an error message etc.
