Windows 7: Extract files from backup VHD image

Extract files from backup VHD image

My ST3500418AS 500GB died and took my Windows 7 with it, so I had to do a fresh install to another hard disk.
Unfortunately, Backup and Restore cannot see the backup location from my previous install, so I can't get my files back that way.

I presume that the VHD file I see in the backup folder is the system image of the previous install.

Is there any way I can extract my files from this VHD using some software package, or even convert it to another format such as ISO and extract my files that way?

There's a lot of great pics and stuff there that I don't even remember where I got it from, so I'm pretty desperate to get it all back.

All help greatly appreciated.
