    Question .wsi and .dsi formats

    I hope to be in the right place. I created a backup using Lenovo One Key Recovery 8 on my first Laptop. The backup is composed by one .wsi file, .dsi files and many files without format. I tried to restore the backup using a new Lenovo Laptop since the previous was broken and Lenovo substituted it with a new one. However, the software reads the MAC address of the original Laptop and I can't restore my backup.. losing in this way all my data. Could somebody help me to restore my data? do you know any system to fix Lenovo's software bug?

    You really should ask Lenovo for help, after all it is their software and hardware and they should provide support.

    I have already done it. Without the original laptop I can't restore my date because the software reads the MAC address, however since my data are compressed in .wsi & .dsi extension I belive there a software to extract them.

    You can try to cheat the Lenovo One Key Recovery by changing your MAC at software level.
    Open regedit and go to
    Code:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E972-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
    You'll find a couple of subkeys there. Browse through them until you find the key with your physical adapter. You can spot it by looking at DriverDesc string value.
    Once you found the key - go to NetworkAddress string value. It is empty by default. Modify it with desired MAC.
    For example your original MAC was C8-60-00-D3-56-90. Put C86000D35690 into NetworkAddress string value. In most cases you dont need to reboot. Its enough to turn off and turn on the device via either device manager either Control Panel\Network Connections. Or via control ncpa.cpl or even by using devcon.
    You can see if MAC is changing by running getmac in console. Or by executing ipconfig /all
    There are some other ways but lets try this one.

    Thanks for the advice Skymmer. There are only two issues. In order to use One Key Recovery I need to reboot the Laptop. Could your solution work even if I reboot the Laptop?
    Second problem: I do not know the original Mac but I have the backup.wsi which looks like an XML file, is the MAC address there? To be honest I'm not expert.

    This is what is written in the .wsi file:

    Well, I really can't say for sure.

    Yes, presumably its there. And theoretically your previous MAC was: 00-A0-C9-3E-C9-3B
    Actually you have two methods now:
    1. modify current registry with your previous MAC
    2. get your current MAC and modify the wsi file
    If you'll go with the 2nd method then you need to make the following modifications:

    Where xxxxxxxxxxxx is the actual digits of your current MAC. Please note that in some cases there is more than one MAC in your system so you need to try them all.
    If MAC spoofing will fail then we can try other approaches.

    I was carrying out your strategy but then I recognized that something doesn't work. I created time ago a backup of my current laptop in order to compare the two files, but the Mac address is the same in both backups: 00-A0-C9-3E-C9-3B. To have a clear idea I copy both files (in the file that I posted earlier I have already done some changes, but I forgot it.. now I am posting the originals):

    ОК, I've uploaded the zip with two different backup.wsi files. Maybe one of them will do the trick.
    You need to substitute the backup.wsi file from your old backup with one from the archive. And then try to restore.
    DON'T delete the original wsi, simply rename it to backup.ws_ or something like that
    But before you gonna try it - I must say one thing. I don't want to put you into troubles so you're doing this on your own risk.

    Thanks in any case for your help. It would be a miracle if I restore my data. Unfortunatelly the new files didn't work.

    I asked for help also in Lenovo Forum, they said something about hard disk size:

    I have briefly looked though the links you gave above, and the problem seems to be that the Lenovo software you used (OKR) sucks donkey dicks. Your data is probably lost, because of the stupidity of Lenovo.
    The lesson is that using obscure proprietary file formats for backup is not a very good idea.

    I made a huge mistake trusting Lenovo's Software.. but nowhere was written about this issue neither on official website and manual. I have only one possibility, I created a petition asking Lenovo to release a decompression software in order to fix its issue. I would be grateful if you sign my petition.. https://www.change.org/p/management-...edium=copylink

    It is in Italy but soon I will create an English version.
