Note1: this is a picture of a test I made - yours may look slightly different
Note2: The lettering for the disks during recovery does not always match the original lettering in Windows 7. E.g. your "F" disk may end up as "D".
Thank's for jumping in Wolfgang. It's a while since I used the Linux disk.

No problem Keith - I just saw the thread a little while ago.

Thanks for jumping in whs. I understand how Macrium is supposed to work.
I can find the external drive, but no folders created in Windows 7 show up. There are 3 folders created by Macrium on XP machines, but when clicking on the + icon or double clicking they don't open. The XP machines can't open the folders either. I had to put the image file in the root of the drive to restore with XP, but that does not work with Windows 7.

I took a look at the security permissions on the folders but didn't really know what I was looking for. Would they carry over to a Linux disk?

Puzzling - so the images are there and you can mount them by double clicking - right. But how did this folder in which they are get created. Did you make this folder?

If not, create a folder on the external disk yourself and copy one of the images into it. Then see what happens.

No. The folders made with Windows 7 don't appear in the tree on the boot disk. Folders made with XP are visible, but will not open.

I made the folder before starting the backup image.

If not, create a folder on the external disk yourself and copy one of the images into it. Then see what happens.
I already tried making a new folder and moved a image file into it.

When I get a chance, I will create a new folder with Macrium and make a new image in that folder.

My question was a bit different. When you open the folder from withing Windows 7, the images are there or not. And if you double click on one of the images, does it mount (is the a VHD in My Computer).

Based on my earlier question it was my understanding that you could browse to your images from within Windows 7 but not the linux boot disk. Is this correct?

If so then we can test potential linux boot disk issues by accessing the images through Hirens Boot CD. Download and burn a DVD which will boot
Download Hiren
Then start up the inbuilt Macrium like shown here

You should be able to browse to and mount the images just like in windows.
More importantly you should be able to restore them.

Edit: The Macrium Relect included should be viewed as a fully functioning utility not simply some diagnostic program. It's far more capable than the simple linux boot disk.

whs, sorry I misunderstood what you wanted. If I click on the image file while in Windows 7, it opens and I can explore the contents.

mjf, I'll try downloading Hiren tomorrow and see what happens.

Thanks guys for the help, I'm about done for today!
