    That's because they're in a hidden section on OneDrive for security reasons.

    Use this link - Learn about Windows Phone backup | Windows Phone How-to (United States)

    In the section under Delete Backups there is information to where they are. They're only accessible through the online version of OneDrive as far as I know.

    You can't do much with them.

    whats the purpose of backing up your stuff on one drive if you cannot reinstall them on your phone?

    They get restored when you preform a factory reset or you buy a new handset and set it up.

    The restore function happens after a hard reset or after use of the Recovery Software Tool and you login. This is a safeguard to prevent just anyone downloading your backed up data.

    The backup is only for emergency purposes and not for every day backup. You should have your photos and personal documents stored on OneDrive or some other drive so that if something happens you have that data.
