How to view and retrieve previous backup file to another computer

I have backed up 3 student laptops to WD My Book prior to handing them back to school. Now I want to retrieve some files to a new laptop with a different name. The retrieve command will not list an earlier backup from a computer other than the one that it is currently connected to. I have not used any security options when backing up. How can I view all other computer backups?

If you used smartware to backup your files, check the link below to review the steps to retrieve the files. You can also explore the smartware backup folder (smartware.swstor) and copy your files manually.
