Ubuntu – How to restore downloads folder from de ja dup backup


I backed up my entire home folder including Downloads.

After purchasing a new laptop, I found there is no "revert to previous version" when right clicking on downloads. There are files in Downloads that I want.

How to access them from my external in De Ja Dup backup?
