Cannot detach Virtual Hard Drive VHD

After trying the Tutorial on System Image - Extract Files Using System Image, (works great by the way) I don't seem to get the "Detach VHD" drop down screen as shown in the Tutorial when I right click on the Virtual Hard Drive. I get the standand open, explore format delete volume etc. (see attached - I think)

Don't want to do anything stupid at this point.
Many thank in advance

Hello Johnny,

You would need to right click on the Disk # to the right of the disk in the bottom of the middle pane instead to see it. The screenshot under step 4 in OPTION TWO of that tutorial below has this location boxed in red to help see where to right click.

In addition, restarting the computer will detach it as well.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
