    So as to help me understand, if someone can, so to put closure on this..

    Looking at the sequence here

    Attachment 32321

    If you look at pane 3 the date shows 8/8 (this is the same in pane 1&2) however pane 4 shows todays date

    Why?

    I feel I should be able to use one of these (file size file one 147gb. file size file two 2.59gb).

    I'm I right in this thought?

    Thank you
    You could most certainly try attaching that VHD file to see if you can access and recovery files from it if you like.

    lol.. replace is something I still haven't tried yet.

    And... after a bazillion tries, I was finally able to create drive F using the second file in the image shown above

    So to tie in with what you've asked, how do I restore/replace any one particular file/folder from above as stated here

    So for example, unless I'm reading step 10 wrong, I should be able to replace the Windows file/folder in drive C with that of the Windows files/folders in the F drive

    No, no. You would only want to copy over individual files (ex: pictures, documents, etc...) you wanted from the backup or image instead.

    If you try to replace the Windows (or any system folder) with one from the backup, you'll break Windows 10.
