I recently had to reinstall Windows Vista, and now want to restore my backup I did about a month ago on my Seagate GoFlex external drive (it is not encrypted btw).

There are 2 methods to restore, the first uses the Memeo Instant Backup interface and the second just uses Windows Explorer interface. I can likely get method 2 to work, but it'll take ages to restore and extract the 400 zip filesof about 200M each so I really want to use method 1, BUT when I choose to restore files, the only backup plan option given to me is the one recently done.

According to the directions at [url=http://knowledge.seagate.com/articles/en_US/FAQ/214205en#instant]FreeAgent GoFlex - Memeo Backup Premium / Instant - Restoring Your Backup Plan[/url], "To reactivate the backup plan, go to the Actions menu and choose Reactivate Backup Plan". But, when I select Reactivate, I get "You already have an active backup". So I selected "Remove Backup". Now when I select Reactivate, I still get only one option: the one recently done.

Any advice?
