Windows 7: How can I extract/open .WCL/.W01 recovery files? (Samsung Recovery S.)

How can I extract/open .WCL/.W01 recovery files? (Samsung Recovery S.)

Hi, I've seen a couple of posts about the backup files of Samsung Recovery Solution. (.WCL .WOO and .W01, .W02)

My system crashed yesterday and I'm struggling with it since then. I did a whole system backup which takes 94 GB in size. When I tried to restore it it fails around %50 of the restoration with "couldn't read" message.

I need to extract/open those files to get my stuff back. I couldn't find ANY application to do that. Samsung's own program doesn't have a viewer or smth like that.

Someone mentioned changing the extension to .WIM might work with 7z but it didn't.

Anyone knows about this?
