I wouldn't swear to it, but the problem may be related to the fact you didn't backup to an external hard drive.

Also, did you create a system repair disc that you can boot into and restore from it?

I don't use windows imaging - it often couldn't find the images.

You might be able to persuade it - check out the tutorial section.

The image is far too small, I can't make head nor tail of it even when it's enlarged.

There is one which explains if you moved/renamed the image - you have to move it back and name it back to the original.

If you haven't done that - the other way is to mount the vhd - make an image of the mounted vhd with another imaging app- then restore that new image you just made with - e.g. macrium, paragon, whatever.
