Windows 7: System Image backup

System Image backup

I have just created a System Image Backup on my "slave" drive which I had done once before. When I look at the "WindowsImageBackup" folder it is dated prior to my last backup. Does that mean that I didn't get a new image or that it replaced my previous image but didn't change the date?

Also can I move the image to a flash drive or an external HD and restore from there?

The correct date of your last image taken should be on the subfolder within WindowsImageBackup.

If in doubt, you can attach the .vhd files in Disk management to browse and edit their contents: Virtual Hard Disk - Create and Attach VHD

You are correct. The "WindowsImageBackup" folder is an older date but as I drill down....bingo!

Thanks for the post.
