Backup-ed files are automatically renamed.

Hi everyone,

Thanks for taking the time to read my post. I recently bought a new hard drive to replace a dying one I had for years.
( Seagate 2TB BarraCuda SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache)

I also bought a external hard drive to back up my files onto.
( WD 2TB Elements Portable External Hard Drive - USB 3.0)

I backed up my files using (windows 10 backup) then reinstalled windows 10 onto the new drive and updated everything. The problem is when I went to retrieve the files out of the external hard drive all my files from steam were all were renamed so, they are useless now. (unless I renamed them all)

For example:

The steam.exe is renamed to "Steam (2017_10_05 01_16_52 UTC)"


Is there anything I can do to restore them to their original name?
