fastconv.exe usage

  phono 23:10 19 Apr 06

Has anybody got any experience with using fastconv.exe? It is an unsupported MS tool that is supposed to let you decompress the *.dat files saved after a Files And Settings Transfer operation, thus allowing access to individual files.

An idiots guide with examples would be very much appreciated as I have been unable to get it to work properly so far.

Better still, does anyone know of a Windows based program that will do the same thing?

Thanks for the link, it looks promising, I can't try it out tonight so will do so tomorrow some time and report back.

Once again, many thanks.

Tried the suggestions in the link to no avail, I keep getting an error message that the source is not valid, or something similar, no matter what combination I try, from numerous Google searches it appears that most people have little or no success with fastconv.exe.

I think I will start another thread to see if there is an alternative way of accessing these files.

No further takers so I'll close as unresolved.
