Windows 2008 server backup software


I have been backing up files using windows 2008 server backup. As can be seen from the attachment, files are backed up successfully. However if I tried to recover a file, the only highlighted in bold is yesterday date.
Is there a way to select other dates?

Please advise.

Just select another date, the bold is just the latest date you can choose from.

I selected another date but 'Next' is greyed out. No option to proceed further.
I had the same issue. It seems like the catalog only sees the last days backup. Once it overwrites it the history is gone.

My backup writes to a folder on a share. I went to that location unshared the original destination folder and renamed it. I created a new share with the same name as the original destination folder and same share name. I dropped the backup I wanted to restore in there with the same folder structure. At that point the date I was restoring was available in the Windows Backup GUI (it wasnt bold but I was able to select it and press next). I was able to recover my backup.
