Hmm, I have never seen such a behavior. Do you actually have Macrium installed on that system or are you working from the WinPE CD ??

I have Macrium installed on my wife's laptop which is what the screencast was made from. I just plugged in the external HDD and double clicked the mrimg file to mount . . .well you saw it

Yeah, but if the image came from your PC, then you cannot mount it on the wife's laptop. I think I told you that.

Install Macrium on the system from where the images came and try again. That should work.

Try this. Make a new image on your wife's laptop to the external disk. Make a folder on the external disk and put the image into that folder (navigate in Macrium to that folder). Then see whether the mounting of that image gives you the same problem.

This whole story is very bizarre. We have to find the cause.

I imaged her laptop a few days ago and tried to mount and navigate her image file on both my computer and hers and I could browse files just fine. I feel like Bill Murray in groundhogs day, I click on the image and go in circles. I must have made the image wrong to begin with?

I think that is the case. Before you image again you might want to have a look at my tutorial:

Can you post a picture of your disk management. Maybe we can figure it out. An 87GB image corresponds to appr. 140GB of data.
