    I used the Easy Windows Backup on my old machine (running vista), saved to an external hard drive. Installed the latest 8.1.1 on a new machine and tried to use the Easy Windows Backup to restore my stuff, but I get this message "Windows Easy Transfer can't transfer files from Windows Vista or Windows XP".

    Is there any way I can recover my files from the Easy Transfer Backup?

    This feature no longer works in windows 8.1. You need to share your backup content with Microsoft, e.g. use their cloud backup services. The other way around is to use USER STATE MIGRATION TOOL.

    you can't use system restore application of windows 8.1 to restore vista backup image.
    If you have vista image backup created via vista easy backup and you have vista bootable DVD/USB stick then you have to boot from it and follow the pictorial steps :
