Dell restore failure

I tried to restore my Inspiron to a backup created 7 months ago with dell backup and recovery - on an external USB drive.  This backup was made after i upgraded to win10. The restore allowed me to save all my files, went through the steps, restored OS, then failed with an exception error when it was 25% through the restore of my data and settings.

My machine now boots up with a clean win8 - as it came from factory just under 1 year ago.  

If i boot off external USB drive, it wants to start the restore from scratch !  it seems that i have a good data backup on the USB drive - how do I restore this ?

Thank you for writing to us!

We will not be able to help you with restoring data onto the system.

It could be possible that the USB drive is faulty/corrupt . We would advise you to contact a local tech if needed.
