the hard drive failed on my laptop so have got a new one and I had 2 system image back ups.
When I tried to reinstall the most recent one it did not find it from the external hard drive.
So I installed the old system image.
In the new one I am able to mount the .vhd file in Disk Management and see it is the exact same size as my c: drive.
Is it possible to replace the contents of of my c: drive with the .vhd contents?
