When you have used backup to your external drive you should get a confirmation message to say it is completed. Right clicking on your external drive in My Computer will show you all the files.

Did you have the external drive connected when you selected backup and did you select the correct drive number to backup to - ie: H or G ?

Are you sure you selected the correct location to backup to as in Step 3 of those instructions?

It looks as if the backup has gone to your D drive or D partition. The title Backup most likely refers to your Bulldog backup and the ATTR is the file extension.

Info here about ATTR file enter link description here and a File Extension enter link description here

If you are selecting any one of your external drives for the backup destination then it should be going there. Is there any at all data on these drives?

None that I can see is it possible to either move the files to the external drive using copy and paste or restore them and do the backup again

You could select the files that you want to backup - right click on the files/files and select send to selecting the destination ie: your external HDD

I don't use Bullguard but backup programs are pretty much the same although there are some differences but all designed to do just that - Backup.

Most have options to do a manual backup or a scheduled backup but either way you should get some indication on your taskbar that the program has started, its progress and when it is completed.
