Windows 7 Backup - Unable to Restore

I have a backup file which I created on Windows XP.  It has a BKF extension.  However, I want to restore these documents/spreadsheets, etc. to my windows 7 machine.  When I attempt to specify where my BKF file is located, it seems my windows 7 backup will only allow me to specify a network location for my restore source.  This is wierd.  I do not have home network.  I just have my BKF file which I placed on my desktop.  Here's what appears when I enter the location of my BKF file:
