    Windows system imaging was virtually the same in Windows 7 as it is in Windows 10, the same warning that your not supposed to be able to restore individual files applies....

    Yes I have it, I opened the location of the 3 Large VHD? files, I selected the 3 and extracted them to a folder on my desktop(oops)
    Being my C:\ isn't that big I'll try extracting to 4TB drive after I eat. Correct me if I need to do it differently please.
    Once you have copies of the .VHD files on your 4TB drive you can mount each one by double-clicking on it. A virtual drive will appear as a new drive letter in File Explorer where you will be able to take ownership and change permissions on any file or folder, just as you would with any normal drive.

    I have 2-3 copies of WindowsImageBackup from Win 7, on 3 different external drives, just like 10 I keep at least 3 full system backups on 3 separate drives, I take data loss, or lack thereof seriously...

    I tried extracting all 3 VHD files to a folder on 4TB ext., Drive from 7 zip program 0's again..

    I went to the files in explorer, rt., clicked it said add to archive, then a bunch of letters to 'save as' in the WindowsImageBackup folder, same place as the images, 'Adding' slowly, we'll see. ty

    Ty, no,

    I don't think 3rd party is the answer
    When Windows doesn't work like it should or is expected to, 3rd party tools are ALWAYS the answer. Get over this purist attitude and look at the wider picture.

    Advice has been plentiful here, losing interest very fast ..... Anyway, here's me bus, I'm outta here.

    Ty,
    No deal, it created an archive, then extracted it, then I attached it, then another blank / 0 byte drive in explorer... a bunch of temp files in C:\Users\User\AppData\Local\Temp\...

    Tomorrows another day.

    Ty all Again,

    I've tried 6 different ways from Sunday to attach a Image created in Win7 to Win10, including 7-Win and disk genius.

    As far as networking/ credentials go, I just access the public folders on Win 11 machine from my Win 10, I don't need full Access...

    I used to have all access in 2021-22, I didn't change anything, Windows update, I'm sure...

    I never really had a problem, just a simple question, Thanks again for all your input...

    Yours,
