Back-up - checking back up disc

Book says back-up photos to disk and to check disk on another computer.  Says don't restore; just explore CD to see that .jpg files are on disk.

HOWEVER< only options when opening disk are restore to :orig. location,  or this folder.  So how can you verify jpgs are there?

You should also see an option to 'Open Folder to View Files'

dialog box when inserting a Picasa backup diskImage Enlarger

If you don't get that, then cancel your options by clicking the x to close that dialog box.

Then, using My Computer you can locate disk, right click and Open (Windows 7) or Explore *(Windows Vista/XP).

See the Picasa video #19 “Getting a File from a Backup”
