Restore from Norton backup

I am not entirely sure what happened, but my SSD apparently took a dump on the Windows install.  I have Norton set up to do a backup every day, and I am pretty sure I have those files.  I have now reinstalled Win10 and I want to restore whatever I can from my last Norton backuip.  Will it return my Windows to the previous iteration?  Will my various files be returned?  How the heck do I get Norton to see the old backup?  I tried it last night and Norton did not see any backed up files.  I looked and the last answer that matched this quesiton was from 2016.  Hopefully I am not SOL.

Re: Restore from Norton backup

Otherwise, I can confirm that all of my old files are in a directory named windows.old.  So, if Norton doesn't work, I should be able to work some magic with that.
