Symantec System Recovery 2013 R2 - Custom Bakcup .fbf files

I have a custom backup set up to back up a custom directory.

The back up is successful, but the result is onlt a seperate directory with a bunch of .fbf files.

How can I use this backup?  It's not part of a recovery point because it's custom, but there is no obvious way to access it.

Thanks

That's correct. This is a file and folder backup, not a volume based backup.

To restore from this backup, click on Recover My Files from the home page. Then select File and Folder under 'Search In'.

I have tried to do this.

Even when the folder is selected, files from the backup points show but not the ones from the custom folder backup.

Any suggestions?

Not sure what you mean by custom folder backup?

Was the backup done on the same machine where you are trying restore or was it done on a different machine?
