Windows 7: Backup and Restore issue

Backup and Restore issue

Hello Forum,
Recently while doing some maintenance I found something strange, almost a week ago I made a backup image of the system disk. Today I was looking for the backup image, it appears there is no image, as you can see on attached screenshot No.1 it says there are no backups saved at that location, so I clicked on "Select another backup..." but nothing was found as you can see on screenshot No.2, but still it is there on that "G" disk as highlited on screenshot No.3.
Is that image useless ? shell I delete it and make a new one ?
I still have the Macrium image but I want to be on safe side and have another one, and the disk is getting filled-up.
Answers will be appreciated

With Windows imaging and on the high seas you never know what is going to happen. You were smart to make a Macrium image. Those are at least reliable and don't disappear like the Windows images without a reason.
