If the folders are blank, that likely means you attempted to unzip the file before it was completely downloaded, the files are hidden, or you cannot see the .ZIP extension of the file.

    For anybody who may still be having this issue, I realized what the real solution was. Previously Symantec System Recovery (Backup Exec System Recovery) came on one DVD, it was both the installation and the boot-able recovery media. When I purchased this software (SSR 2013) I downloaded an iso file just like the OP. When launching that CD, there was no option to install (which threw me off because older versions did have this). This CD was just the boot-able recovery CD! Not the installer!

    There is a separate download from Symantec for the various editions of SSR 2013 (Desktop, Server Edition, Virtual Edition). They come as 60-day trial-ware and you enter your product key to activate them. These are the programs, and are now separate from the boot-able Recovery CD's.

    7 of them!?!? Haha, seems like overkill. I'll stick with my downloads, there were just two of those.
