The problem is that I'm NOT, under any circumstances, interested in overwriting any of my harddrives...I only need to get all the .doc files out of the backup... [/B]
I am not sure that you will be able to do that. If you backup a whole drive and not specific directories, then you restore to a whole drive.
A trick you may try , you could map a network drive to a directory of a harddisk that has enough space , and then restore the data to the network drive. Then you may select the files you want.
