One of the articles from Macrium Reflect below may be able to help with that.

Shawn. thanks again. I knew how to browse Macrium images, and that I could copy and paste items from the images, but I can't find out how to import contacts from the backup of Windows Live Mail. (I have a full and a number of incremental backups of my C drive, and also a separate backup plus incrementals of Windows Live Mail).

Please advise further.

Thanks and regards,
Roy

I would think that you should be able to extract the contact files from the Macrium image, then go through the steps in the tutorial to select the extracted contact files to import them.

I'd restore the whole Contacts folder from the image.
