I have a backup of a windows system (I think it is win7, but it might be vista). That I took using the windows system tools. I need to be able to access these files from an ubuntu environment.
The backup is on an external USB hard drive. I can see the files, basically a bunch of zip files. I suppose I could manually open each one, but that strikes me as rather a tedious business.
More specific, but probably not relevant:
This is a netbook that I was attempting to dual boot with windows and ubuntu. I did take a careful backup before starting, which is a good thing since I accidentally deleted the windows partions. Sigh. Really, more than anything else I need the user data, Documents and downloads directory, and especially the firefox profile info.
