    Second Image Failure Error

    Created image with W7 Backup & Restore.
    First I got parameter failed (0X80070057). Rebooted to W10 installation via USB and got as far as pulling up the most recent image. When I checked progress at 2.30am, I had this error: 0X800703ED. Without an OS, I then booted from USB again and reinstalled Win10.

    I may have to restore using a .pst that is a few months old. But first you have to hold a shotgun to my head.
    I have these files in my external drive:
    Hard Disk Image File (2)
    11 XML Documents

    I ran scans and checks the other day and there was nothing, as far as I know, to indicate any of the above are in an UNusable state.
    Do I need to do something to these files to make them readable? Bootable?

    When I right click and attempt to Mount, this is the error: The disk image isn't inititalized, contains partitions that aren't recognizable, or contains volumes that haven't been assigned drive letters. Please use Disk Mgmt snap-in to make sure that the disk, partitions, and volumes are in a usable state.

    Are my files salvageable? Why am I struggling?
    Is one option easier or better than the other?

    Thank you.

    After reading while waiting - This is a different build than the saved image. Did MS screw me out of any chances to salvage my data?

    Additional information.

    I hope that I'm looking at the key to solving this.
    Inside Drive Management.

    When I clicked on the first image in HD, from within DM, the message said it's already attached. When I clicked the second, it then attached,

    I have six simple, basic, and healthy volumes:

    blank Basic - --------------- Primary 14.65GB 100% free
    Blank Basic --------------- Recovery 450MB 100% free
    blank Basic -----NTFS ------------Primary 450MB 22% free
    (C) ---Basic-----NTFS --------- System 283GB 93%
    (D) Free Agent - NTFS -------------Primary 465GB 71% "
    OS ---------- NTFS ------------Primary 283GB 77% "

    Thank you.
