Last Monday I had to make a lot of backup for my work and Windows 7 files such as my username and so on to my external hard drive .


So when my computer was being to migration from Windows 7 to Windows 10. I had to re-install a lot of ArcGIS 10, Trimble Pathfinder Office, ERDAS 2016 softwares and many more...back to my C drive .....


My simple question for you is that when I re-install my ArcGIS 10.3.1 to my computer and launch ArcMap,, the only thing that  came my mind was "How do I restore my existing maps or mxd files" that I had before Windows 10.



I tried to copy my normal.mxt from the backup to where it should be in the users' temeplates .


It did not show up...I was wonder if it is possible for me to restore them ?


Thanks for you feedback
