Other backups on MyBook

I use a MyBook 1TB with WD SmartWare for automatic backups,

Due to to a defective C: drive I replaced the drive and installed Windows 8.1 again, and the WDSmartware.

Now the startup screen of WD SmartWare shows, in the MyBook some new backups from the new disk, and a huge darkblue block with the title (in Dutch) “Andere back-ups” which means “Other backups”. I don’t know the exact message in English. How can I access these backup to restore? I can’t find any way to select these backups.


You can access the backup folder manually. This folder is called “WDSmartware.Swstor” and it is located on the root of your drive. All backups done with WD Smartware will be on this folder
