Restoring an xp backup to win7

I have an old xp nt backup that I am trying to restore to a 64 bit  win7 machine.  I download NtBackupRestore_Win64.msi and tried to install.  I get a message about turning on or installing removable storage manager.

I go to control panel-->Programs and features-->turn windows feature on or off.   Removable Storage Management is not there to turn on.  

Where can I get  Removable Storage Management ?

you can restore NT backup under windows 7.

follow this guide.

not sure on your direct question - but you could always do the restore in a virtual machine running XP, and then using XP backup

Removable Storage Manager is no longer available as of Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2

You must use ntbackup in windows 7, Description of the Windows NT Backup Restore Utility for Windows 7 and for Windows Server 2008 R2
I'm not sure if you could actually get any data from ntbackup.. (it was discontinued since vista).
The most feasible solution i can think of is to install windows xp inside a virtual machine (vbox, vmware, msVirtualPc etc..) and restore your data.
