Help restoring backups from Backup Exec 2010

We have a server running 2008 and Backup Exec 2010. This server has 2 RD1000 drives which looks to be regular SATA drives. These drives have multiple .BKF files within them.

I am unable to find a way to restore any data in these backups. This server was wiped, so Server 2008 and Backup Exec 2010 were reinstalled.

I have tried to Google resolutions and mainly come back with inventory/cataloggin results, but have had no luck trying any of them.

 

If anyone can help that would be great.
