You certainly can with commercial products like Acronis, but I don't know about the Windows product. I would guess you can--if you can't, that would be a major shortcoming.

One piece of information I found somewhere suggested it could be done by mounting your VHD file, however no instuctions were given as to how.

Now that I think about it, the comment was made in a Wikipedia article I found on Windows 7 Backup and Restore. Does anyone know how this can be done, or is there even another, better way?

It would be very helpful to be able to do so.

Hello Wsplawn,

Yes, you can. These two tutorials can help show you how to.

and

System Image - Extracting Files from using Virtual PC

Hope this helps,
