  • Th contents of the backup folder on the external drive are hidden and protected by OneCare. To view the backup, open OneCare and proceed with a custom restore, selecting to choose what data to restore. Don't actually restore the data, but you will be able to see the backed up files.

  • The reply was right on money, check via the method described and the files were there on external drive.  Thanks
