How to extract photos from smart switch backup to PC only

I have a backup done using smart switch from my old Samsung S5 galaxy phone and I would like to know How to extract files or photos from smart switch backup to PC only.

The reason I am doing this is that I think the old phone may have had virus and I don't want to restore all backup to my new phone. I want to start fresh. But, there are some important photos (generated / edited using third party apps) which i need to copy across to my PC.
