I have a 50 gigs Windows Vista created backup in an external hard drive. Its full of .zip files with a catalog file. Now when I open it in Windows 7 its not readily detected in the back up recovery application. There being no obvious way to understand into which .zip backup an original folder was split into - its becoming tad difficult to dig through them. Windows search probably can not see through a zip - so I have to unzip every folder inorder to allow it to index it. Is there a way to recover the files any easily? Would really appreciate any help ...

If answers did not help, do I still need to accept one? I do take the hit with 0% acceptance rate and thereby limiting the chance of getting another question answered ... but does it make sense to accept any answer? It seems there is no other way than deleting previous questions ... –  Tathagata Jul 16 '11 at 15:19
