I backed up my computer (Vista) before I switched to Fedora. I find that I badly need to restore to the backup I made, but am having trouble figuring out how. what I need to know is if I CAN restore to a Windows backup, and if so, how?

How did you backup your windows installation (what tools, what media)? – Mat Dec 4 '11 at 21:14

Assuming that you used the built-in Windows Backup package that creates .BKF backup files, your best bet is probably the mtftar utility from Internet Connection (usage examples on SavvyAdmin and an old Digg thread).
