ARestore seizes up

I have a Norton 360 V2.0 file of 100gb that was moved from a portable hard drive to a new HP Windows 7 machine. The file appears to be corrupted. I copied ARestore.exe and ARestore.loc from my new CD version of 360 and put it in the C drive root directory along with the directory N360_BACKUP and the single corrupted file, which is a long alfanumeric file. There is no file backup.@db file there anywhere. All of this is now in the root directory of a new HP machine with lots of power and memory. When I click on the ARestore.exe file in normal mode or administrator mode, the program appears to start and then seizes up with the rotating wheels not moving. It also seizes up Norton 360 and my entire machine. When I do a small sample backup from Norton, it creates a series of files as described on the forum.

What next?

Re: ARestore seizes up

Hi sunblock90,

 

I assume that the 360 CD you are having might be of version 3.0 which is not compatible with Win7.

 

Probably you can try by grabbing the Arestore files from latest v3.5 which is compatible with win7.

 

Use the below links for downloading the latest builds 

Norton 360 Standard Edition version 3.5
