Restoring Files from CD's
Hello, thank you to whomever answers this.
A few days ago I had to reinstall Windows on my computer using a reinstallation disk and now I would like to know how to put the files that I backed up on cd's back onto the computer.
I tried restoring them and
it gave me an error saying The parameter is incorrect(0x80070057) I just want these files to go back to where they were before I had to restore Windows.
How do I do this? Please help!
