Before doing a backup I could view the external drive (G:) but after the backup was completed successfully the only way I was able to view the backup was to go through the backup software and not through My Computer. Is there a way to be able to view it in My Computer? PLEASE AND THANKS!

No, windows does not give you the option to view the backup disk.

"Furthermore, when I say that a dedicated drive is required, I do mean dedicated. Windows will not even give you access to the drive through Windows Explorer. You can only access it through Windows Server Backup."
