Default Windows Backup Utility Help

I am planning on clean installing Windows XP, so I created a backup of the full system state just in case on another partition.

Once I have my clean installed Windows XP, how am I supposed to transfer some of my files and not all of them? (I know you can uncheck system settings.)

I basically only want some of my old files on my clean install so I can have better overall performance.

I know that it was advisable to backup only the drivers, important files, etc when doing a clean install, but I was being precautious and backed everything up in case of failure during the process.

Thanks if you can help me.

I am asking this because whenever I try to restore the stuff, it shows just one big .bkf file, and not the individual files and folders I backed up. I don't want everything I originally backed up, only the stuff I need like documents, drivers, etc.

Never mind. I was a bit rash and didn't realize that you could restore individual files. What's weird is that some files have a different, weird icon.
