Restore to a different computer

I see similar posts but I’m not seeing a clear answer…Sorry if this is a duplicate post…

We back up several PCs to MyBook. One PC died so we want to restore files from the backup of that PC to a different PC.

In the restore tab it seems that each PC can only see its own backups. How can I access / restore files from on PC to another - or is this just not possible with the provided software?

Thank you


You will need to install the software on the computer that you want to do the restore. Then from that computer you will be able to do the restore.

All of the computers have the wd backup software on them - they are all being backed up. When I go to the Retrive tab I only have the backups of that computer to choose from. I cannot browse to or choose backups of other computers.
