    I checked several files with GDB and they all opened with their respective folders.

    I was looking for an option to restore only one folder with subfolders from the Lizzie Archive folder in the image. I selected the option to view files in the image, as I didn't see the option in the Restore section to select that folder.
    As shown in the left window, it's the folder called 101 B10 MediaWorx, opened as H drive by Reflect. I want to restore it to the new Seagate drive, which my wife has already put files on. I had created a partition on the drive to restore the full image to, but when I got to the final step in that restore process it said it was going to erase data on both partitions, even though I had selected just the one partition I had just created, so I cancelled that and changed it back to just the one partition.

    Thank you again!

    I think @Bree should be able to help you with his expertise.. ( I had never attempted to copy partition or copy files from an image and as such not qualified )

    Neither have I, as in the past I have only done full image restore when upgrading to a bigger drive, or a new computer.

    It seems that when selecting the file and folder restore option it then looks for an *mbak file to retrieve folders from and doesn't see the .mrimg file

    I may have figured it out. It seems I needed to create a backup file (*mbak) from the .mrimg file and then will be able to restore from that. It's in process, as that folder is the bulk of the files.

    The simplest way to restore some of the files and folders from a Reflect image is to mount the .mrimg file as a virtual drive. You can then just use File Explorer to copy the files/folders that you want. Double-click on the .mrimg file to mount it. Make sure you tick the box to enable access to restricted folders.

    Thank you Bree and Jumanji for your help. I have recovered all the files and formatted the faulty drive, and will return it tomorrow. Now I can concentrate on watching my Chiefs figure out who is gonna make the team as wait for the season to start! #3peat #ChiefsKingdom.

    Have a good week!

    Hail Bree who took you on to the shore and good luck to you. ( I am totally innocent of "#3peat #ChiefsKingdom- something to do with football ????".)
