Files and Settings Transfer Wizard

I have the oddest problem,

I ran the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard on my old WinXP Home and
created a file in a new folder on a network drive in my new computer.

I then ran the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard on the new computer and
pointed to the same folder but I keep getting a msg saying "The location
specified does not contain stored information".

When I looked in that specified folder, the wizard created 2 files. '.dat'
file that is over 2 GB, and another file called 'status' without any
extension.

I don't understand what the problem is, does anyone know how I can recover
my files from the .dat file/ I already reformatted my old computer.


Thank you so much for any assistance anyone can offer,

Lohan Roberto
