    Selecting Renamed Images


    One of many useful tutorials.
    A possible addition to consider:
    When you are in the File System Recover Options menu
    at Step 5
    The images available for selection will exist in the various root directories as [WindowsImageBackup]. If you renamed images as a means to store multiple images, you can rename them back at this stage by selecting the command prompt option. This can be useful when you can only boot from a System Repair Disk.
    1) >diskpart
    >list volumes
    will give you give you the letter name assigned to your volumes.
    2) >cd "volume letter"
    To navigate to where your renamed images are located.
    3) >ren "Renamed Image" WindowsImageBackup
    To rename back to the folder name recognised by Windows for recovery.
    eg.
    >ren WindowsImageBackup_1_1_10 WindowsImageBackup
    Note: If [WindowsImageBackup] already exists but you want another image you need to rename it first.
    4)>exit
    You can now select the renamed image to reimage your system.

    or maybe just:
    If you have renamed images in order to keep multiple images on a single volume, you can use the Command Prompt option at this stage to rename them back to [WindowsImageBackup]. This image will then be given as an option to restore.

    Just a little info until Brink can reply. If the data was included in the Image you made, then yes you can recover it. When you say data, what kind of data? Is it user files of some sort? If it is, then you may not need to use the restore option. You can use Disk Management and mount/attach the Image as a VHD and copy your data from that.

    Hello Ahmed Omer, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    A system image, when created, is a complete backup of the selected hard drives/partitions that includes all files on them.

    If you did not create a system image before you deleted these files, then you will not have a system image to recover them from. If this is so, then you might see if you may be able to use the free programs ShadowExplorer or Recuva to recover the files from the folder that they were in.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    If the data was on a hard drive/partition which you would have made an image of, it could be easily restored. Or as previously mentioned, attached as VHD and copied from. Yes, an image is similar to a backup. Backups are used mostly for backing up your personal data whilst the image would backup/image your entire hard drive/partition.
