Windows 7: My Daily backup cannot be seen on restore

My Daily backup cannot be seen on restore

i will post this issue here, because i cannot get into 8 forums it was blocked by our firewall in the company.
Also, it is a Backup of our Windows Server 2012. I think this is same as windows 8.

Now, i made a daily backup of our server including the System, drive D and drive E. where important files are stored. Last night there was power failure and the battery backup failed also, exactly when my backup starts.
The issue is i need to restore files from the previous day because some files where corrupted on drive E.

But!,

When i do a system restore, the back-up cannot be seen on the restore.
i can access the HDD, i can navigate into it, and i can see the .VHDX file.

Anyone could help or guide me please.

Sorry for my english.

You can try to mount the VHD(s) and recover it from there. Here is how:
