specialistizzy.

Please could you supply some addition information concerning these files that you have problems with.

Something like, how old are the files, the date that they were produced. Also the version of Nero that was used to generate them.

If it is possible can you source the program that was used to generate them.

I have searched for some information regarding .nco files and have found the following info:

Compressed backup file created by Nero BackItup; contains data to be backed up to a CD or DVD; compressed using standard ZIP compression; may also be protected with a password and encrypted using a 56-bit key.

NOTE: Since NCO files use
.ZIP compression, non-encrypted BackItUp files can also be opened by file decompression programs such as WinZip or Stuffit Expander. Just rename the file extension from ".nco" to ".zip" and open the file.

I do not advocate that this is a solution but if you cannot find the program that was used for their generation, perhaps the above suggestion could be used.

The .nco was used I know in V6. I would download the Trial version of Backitup and Burn and try to restore them because the capability to restore older backups was included. If not, several people have have had luck with Backitup 4 but I don't have the link to it. It's in the Backitup forum somewhere but I'd recommend asking tech support for the link.

If you still have your serial number for the version of Nero you had and know which version it was, you might be able to download it.

Hi specialistizzy,

You have two options here.

1) wither´s. That is the first that I would suggest you too.

2) You can also try to open the *.nco files with WinZip/WinRAR or 7zip for example (you can get a compilation program from www.7-zip.org for free).

You now can access the files using the "Open with…" from the context menu. To do so right click onto the file > open with > choose the program you want to use.

The disadvantage is, that the files are only kept with the short names, so it might be necessary to tediously rename them.

Best regards,

Where the is a download for 2 B&B imagetools, whether they are TRIAL programs I will leave it to you to finout.

I don't think the image tool will help in this case and there's no reason to use it if one of the backitup programs can recover the files via Restore.

I appreciate it that they may not help. My input was based on the fact that you could not give a link to a suitable program.

Also that info help had virtually duplicated my input.

I took time out to look at my program and there is a web-link which appears to take me to the required website. But there was an additional link that took me a site that may be of use.

Mind you there is no addition info as to there use and subsequently it would seem that an unpacking routine is required to access the contents. Here I am definitely confused because winzip unpacks one at least to a folder. With no info to go from there, without further experimentations, they are virtually useless, at lest to me. Possibly to others may be. But I will bow to your better knowledge.

Note that the capability to burn an Image Tool disc is included in Backitup and Burn as well as Backitup.

Thank for the info. I supplied the URL assuming that specialistizzy did not have either of the 2 programs.

If he had then I am sure he would have tried them to recover his images.

Anyway let direct own suggestions to specialistizzy instead picking holes in others peoples suggestions whether they are useful or not.
