What In A Sys Image File

» Does manual System Image copy all my programmes, windows7, other docs etc. Is there a way to see what's in sys image file. What does Windows PowerShell in Accessories in Win7 do?


Best Answer

» A system image is an exact copy of a drive. By default, a system image includes the drives required for Windows to run. It also includes Windows and your system settings, programs, and files. You can use a system image to restore the contents of your computer if your hard disk or computer ever stops working. When you restore your computer from a system image, it's a complete restoration—you can't choose individual items to restore, and all of your current programs, system settings, and files are replaced with the contents of the system image.

Although this type of backup includes your personal files, we recommend that you back up your files regularly using Windows Backup so that you can restore individual files and folders as needed. When you set up Windows Backup, you can let Windows choose what to back up, which will include a system image, or you can select the items that you want to back up and whether you want to include a system image. For more information about setting up Windows Backup, see Back up your files.

You want to make sure your system is running clean of any virus/spyware(Exploit:Java/CVE-2012-4681) and no issues with your registry.

    You can mount this file using Disk Management in Windows 7. Right click Computer and select Manage. Select the Disk Management in the left side menu.

    On the Menu Bar, select Action / Attach VHD. Click Browse and navigate to where the backup image is saved and select the VHD file. Click the Read Only check box to make sure the image is not damaged. Click OK.

    The file will be shown with a new Drive Letter. You can browse through the file just like a normal drive.

    For the inquisitive win7 explorer shows one C drive, folders shown seems OK. I haven't done mirror or raid on HD.

DEENA HARLEY replied on February 16, 2013: » The system image will create a full copy of every file on your boot partition, which can be restored from the recovery console on the installation disk. This will restore everything, including the operating system, registry, all installed programs, and user profiles. The separate option to back up specific folders and files is necessary if you want to be able to restore individual files. The "previous versions" feature and the ability to restore just specific files requires that you back up those directories. If you only intend to ever use the restore features to do a full image restore, you don't need to select anything on C:, however, I have found it useful in the past to be able to recovery just a single file or directory of files, such as in the event of an accidental deletion, etc.
