Restore backup from WD Passport to hard drive?

New to the forum, please correct me if I have chosen the wrong section.

Pavilion desktop, XP,  usb Passport Western Digital external drive used as backup drive.  I set it up when purchased to do autobackup once a week. Inspection of Directory of Passport shows list of periodic backups,  it's been some time but I'm quite sure I used a Synch function when setting the Passport up close to 35 weeks ago Anyone know how to restore a full backup from a backup made many weeks ago? Can't seem to find module that lets me spec the date of the backup I want.

Caught a blaster virus/worm, four days of bloody hell wiping it out, forced to system restore, still not up again, need to do a full drive restore from the Passport backup at least three weeks ago.

Thanks.

I wish I could tell you the exact steps to take, but though I use a WD Passport for backup I preferred not to use the included software opting to use my own.

 

Maybe this will help>>> How to restore WD Sync files
