    Restore a file or folder from Macrium Free Image?


    I have found the need (desire) to restore a particular folder or file from a Macrium Free image of one of my hard disks. Is this possible?

    Thank you.

    As I understand it, individual file and/or folder backup and restore is available only in the paid version. Others with better information and a lot more experience than I do will probably come along and offer some help.

    Yes. What you do is double-click on the macrium image. Macrium Free offers to mount the partition(s) from the image as a virtual drive. Select the partition you need, tick the box to allow access to restricted folders then click OK. You can then browse the image as if it were another drive. Then you can just copy the files and/or folders you need.

    That is true, selective folder backup and restore is a paid-for feature. But all versions, paid or free, allow you to mount an image as a virtual drive and use File Explorer to browse it.

    Macrium viBoot (included in Reflect free and paid versions) is another option, even allowing image to be updated and upgraded. For instance, you have system image from version 1803. Mount the image in viBoot, upgrade to 1809, and restore to host.

    ...and Hyper-V requires Win10 Pro - probably the best argument for upgrading to Pro I can think of.

    This is a very useful feature in the free version as explained above. Just mount the partition you want as a virtual drive and copy any files/folders you want. I've found his useful a few times when I accidentally deleted a user file.
