in Oct I put my HP 360 laptop on top of my Toshiba laptop and went to pick up the kids from school.  Both were running and by the time I got home both were fried.  (Toshiba runs REALLY hot)


Now I have a 15" toshiba that keeps trying to fix itself and never boots, & and a 10" HP that says I don't have an OS.


Luckily I had JUST backed up the Toshiba the day before on my "Toshiba Automatic Backup Drive 593701-B external HDD"



When I try to get the files of the HDD it just keeps trying to backup the new computer.



When I look at the "This PC"  under OS (C:)


DBR_Boot (E:)  with 22 MB used 


DBR_MASTER (G:) 20.5 GB used


Then alone >DBR_BOOT (E:)  22 MB used

                   >DBR_MASTER (G:) 20.5 GB used



So the files must be there, I just cant seem to open them.


I have tried opening each section but don't know what to do from there.


Thanks for any assistance-

 What program did you use to back the Toshiba up?  I use Easeus Todo Backup Free, but I don't know what you used.

Make regular full system backups or you'll be sorry sooner or later.
