    These images are tiny on my multi Terabyte disks. Where is the problem. And wait when one of your MS incrementals is corrupted. That will be fun.
    Straw man.

    As you can see from the posted screen shots, Win 10 successfully created an image on a separate partition, but does not want to "see" it when the time comes to restore - likely, because it was created by a Win7 legacy program [regardless of the fact that the program is part and parcel of Win10 Pro]

    Did you ever move an image to another partition and then try to restore.
    Granted, 3rd party tools are a heck of a lot more versatile.

    I guess anybody can use what they like. I had no luck with the Windows imaging.

    That is the way it is supposed to work, and how it has worked for years. Attached you can see what results in Win10 Pro on a Lenovo Flex 3 1580 - the screen shots tell another story.
    The screen shot shows its looking for a file backup, not an image backup. What you need to do is start the system image recovery process and then you'll find the latest backup is selected together with the option to browse for and pick another.

    If I've done a backup but I don't remember what I backed up, how do I see that kind of information?

    Hello Boris,

    If you like, you can use the same method in the tutorial below to mount the system image .vhd file to see what's in it.

    Be sure it's the largest size VHD. The others will not work for this.

    If you did, then see if you are able to open the WindowsImageBackup folder and approve first, then try again.

    Well that won't work as the largest was nearly 500GB big and my current OS drive is only half that size.

    That's ok. Mounting the VHD will not use space on your OS drive. Are you able to mount it after opening the WindowsImageBackup folder first?
