Hi ppl, I have an issue with restoring my backup data from my external drive back onto my computer after being forced to do a full system restore. What's happening is when I open my Seagate Manager program it's not giving me the option to restore my backed up data (even though it's on the drive) instead it's only giving me the backup option I really can't understand why this is if anyone out there could advice me I'd be very greatful. Thanks in advance

Exactly what is the name and version number of the backup program you used?  What is the backup image [file's] extension?

I tried Googling for ideas -- I'm going to learn from others in this thread!  I have no answers for you.
