  1. I used the transfer wizard in XP home edition to transfer my files and setting to an external hard drive. Four dat files have been created.

    After I formatted the C: drive and use the file wizard again, and reference the hard drive and directory it says the location has no stored information. I see the four dat files with the explorer.

    How do I get the data? Please help for this has my data and pictures.

    Try to copy and paste those dat files to the hard drive you have windows installed on. Then run the wizard.
