    Depends how adept you are if you ever need to restore only one of them. Probably simpler to do separate.

    Anyone know what might be causing this and how I can get around it? I've tried numerous times on 3... yes 3 different PC's to get this to work and the image never unmounts properly. I have completely disabled all AV Protections and I just can't work out the reason for why it won't unmount!? Tried looking through the DISM logs, but they're really no help at all.

    It is telling you that something is accessing the mount folder, so it cant complete the unmount. That could happen eg. if you have explorer windows open on the mount .

    I dont know what you are doing on 3 different pcs to cause that.

    you can have a look by starting up dism++ whcih should be able to unmount anything still hanging around.

    Thanks SIW2. I couldn't actually work out what was causing it. I setup a brand new Windows 7 64-Bit VM in VirtualBox with nothing installed and it seems to be integrating okay in the VM.

    There's some software on my PC's that's clearly stopping this from working properly, although l haven't found the culprit yet. But the clean VM seems to have solved the problem. So in future I'll just do it in the VM. It's working anyway and that's the main thing. Thanks again!
