G drive. Due to a problem with my Operating System I was forced to do an
clean install which I did from Dell Factory partition. When I tried to
restore data files from C or Drive specficially .pst and sql databases from
Outlook and Business Contact Manager I could see the files using "restore
from another computer" Advanced restore. But after selecting files I got

"mediaid.bin" file. When I did clean install the External was mapped to F,
