    How to restore Windows image backup from network location


    Hello to all, I am going to upgrade to Windows 10 soon, and so I made a full backup of my hard drive before doing so just in case something goes wrong. I made the backup to a network location, and I know its IP and where the backup is, but which folder do I browse to when I want to restore, because on the network is a folder I created called backupbefore10, and i made windows do the backup to that folder. Inside of that folder there is one called WindowsImageBackup, then inside of that is a folder with the name of my computer, then inside of that there are 3 folders called Backup 2015-07-30 041325, Catalog, and SPPMetadataCache. So if I need to restore this some time, I know the IP to the network location and stuff, but which folder should I browse to when doing system image recovery for it to work
    Any help much appreciated thanks in advance.
