Restore folder structure from .fbf files

I am trying to recover from a hard drive that was being backed up using Norton Ghost 14.0. When the backup was setup, it was setup to backup specific folders, rather than a full system image.
I am left with a few GB of fbf files.
I managed to import them into Ghost on a different computer. However, it seems that I can't recover the full folder structure, just the individual files. If I search through the backup, I can see all the folders and the correct structure, but can't restore them.
In hindsight, a full image backup would have been better.
Is there a way to get my folder structure back from these fbf files, with all the files?

.FBF files do not include the folder structure so the answer is no.

You can; however, manually create the folder structure while you are inspecting the FBF file and then restore the files into them by selectively restoring the correct files into the correct folder.  It will be tedious; but, will get the job done............
