Windows 7: Restoring Documents Folder from VDH

Restoring Documents Folder from VDH

Win 7 64-bit Home Premium Dell Inspiron 15R N5110

I am trying to restore the documents folder from an image I made 2 days ago. I forgot to copy the files there onto my backup drive

I've followed the process of preparing a VDH off the tutorial from this forum and I've selected my VDH, but I can only go down as far as the User folder. I cannot access the documents folder because it stops at the Username folder. It's not a permissions error, its just the windows explorer takes a very long time to load. The green progress bar in the file path never hits the red X at the end.

Is there a way around this? Like booting from a repair disk and doing a selective restore on the Documents folder?

Apparently, if you wait long enough, it actually will go down the folder path and show you the contents. I think it took about 20mins for it to load.
