Apparently Retrospect hasn't been making restore points for me, presumably because my wife changed the power settings on the computer without my knowledge. Anyway, when I tried to back up today, it failed and the log (see below) said I needed to update my existing catalog file. However, I can't figure out where "Tools" is to do so. Any help would be appreciated.

Recently my computer died and it will cost more than the price of a new computer to fix it. Suffice it to say, I'd rather get a newer, faster computer fix an older machine. This didn't strike me as a big deal until I noticed that Retrospect isn't backing up easily accessed files that I can move from computer to computer via my external hard drive. What I need to know is how I can extract files from the restore points I have saved on my external hard drive? Clearly all the data are there, but I'm at a loss as to how to access those files (photos, documents, etc.). I'd appreciate it if someone could walk me through the steps necessary to extract them. Thanks.
