I had a sudden hard drive crash and have a system image back up on an external drive.
I can't remove and replace the hard drive from the computer because there is about 2 inches of space to get a screwdriver in.
I plugged my external drive into a laptop and followed the procedure for attaching a .vhd file.
I have two files backed up on the same evening for some reason, 54 GB and 90GB.
I couldn't get the 90GB vhd to attach properly until I unchecked the read only tab, it mounted, but I couldn't access any files...
I clicked on the file, it asked me to click continue with admin control to permanently give access, it takes a few mins to load...but no files to open.
I really need some important files on that backup so how do I access them safely?
