on what she used to backup the files adn if only "restore" is the option to get files back. For the question, I used Easus for backup of files when I used windows, and with it you could examine files before brining them back onto the computer, and put in a different folder if you wanted to avoid any over write.
My daughter is using Windows 7 Backup and finds it inconvenient because she can't open backed up files without restoring them from her backup drive.. She is afraid that if she restores them, the restored files will overwrite current files on her C drive.
Question 1 - Is this the case or is there an intermediate step in which she can examine restored file contents before deciding whether or not to use them to replace current versions of those files on her C drive?
Question 2 - Is there a better automated backup software product that will allow her to open backed up files without restoring them?
