MS Backup file nameing question

    I'm not that familiar with Microsoft Backup, but have managed to
    configure it (using the backup wizard) to run a weekly scheduled job to
    back up the SYSTEM STATE on my Windows 2000 Pro machine.

    I was sitting at the computer today and saw the backup run...yet when I
    went and started the "restore" function, the only data files that could
    be found were System State files dated July 26 and July 28.

    I KNOW the backup worked... I saw it...and watched as the files were
    verified after being copied.

    What goes on here? I would have expected the restore wizard to show
    show a System State backup with todays date.

    Thanks for the help in advance...

    Maybe you did a normal backup in which case the data was appended to another
    backup. Try browsing the objects on the restore tab.
