The alignment can be set in Macrium too.

Hello Wolfgang I ant to extract My Music from the images I have done because I don't want to put back the image and possibly the problem that had me having to do a clean install. Is this possible??

You should be able to right click on an image and choose "Explore image".
This should mount the image so that you can browse it and copy files from it.

Note:
You may need to click the "Enable access to restricted folders" option.

In theory yes, in practical term no - because of the write protection of the image. If you can figure out a way of how to remove that write protection, then it would be easy. I have not yet found the method - not with Take Ownership, not with command prompt, just no way.

To copy files from the image is easy, to delete them seems to be impossible.

Sorry late reply having problems at my end Peter yes I get that message and it will not let me pick the "E" drive they are on it just defaults to C: and Wolfgang I have had a look at Properties and done what I have in pics with the result that "E" will not open at all and the other images you can just see open with the other option sin the second pic.

Mine is a paid for version and I might just ask support what the heck I can do.

What they sent you is the standard way of mounting an im age. Then you can browse it in Computer. But you cannot change the image because it is write protected and that seems to impossible to change.
