Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Backup & Restore - Unable to Find Previous System Image

I made a System Image to an external USB drive months ago and had a system crash.

I replaced the HD's and attempted a System Image Recovery by booting up using the System Recovery Disk I made and having the external USB drive connected.

When the System Image Recovery tries to scan for backup images it can not find them. I can browse the USB drive using the DOS prompt and the system sees the image backup files.

So I did a clean install on the system and attempted recovering the system image back again.

Still could not recover.

I then did a test System Image to the USB drive successfully and then attempted to recover, system can not find the backup files, but I do see the backup files in the \WindowsImageBackup folder on the USB drive.
