We have a backup of a Vista system made via the Windows Backup utility that we'd like to restore files from to a Windows 8.1 system, however it appears that 8.1 has completely removed the Windows Backup utilities in favor of File History.
The backup itself is a catalog file and a lot of .zip files. As this is a 200GB backup, this would be rather cumbersome to fish files out of. I know that I can try to locate another pre-8.1 system to access the files, but this is also somewhat cumbersome and all my systems are already running 8.1 to begin with.
Is there any kind of utility available to work with Windows Vista/7 backups directly on a Windows 8.1 system?
