Hello and thank you for using this service.

Sorry you are having trouble. I will help you now.

Is your backup a complete backup of your drive, to include your user folders and subfolders, including the hidden appdata and other folders?

Do you have your user folders and subfolders, including the hidden appdata and other folders?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I just want to know which directory to look in, and what the file name is.
Expert:  technicalcat replied 1 month ago.

I actually would need to know what you have backed up so I can direct you to possible location, or to be able to connect and take a look. Without this information , I am out of ideas, so will opt out to other experts for review.
