are you sure that a vhd file can be mounted with daemon tools? i am not talking about an image from a DVD. im talking about the backup that is created by windows vista when you use the complete pc backup option.

Programs that can read Virtual PC disks can access it.

Search for programs that can access content of VHD files (Virtual PC Hard drive files).

or in worst case scenario:

  1. Download Virtual PC (VPC 20007 is released now and runs in XP/Vista) for free and make a new virtual PC. Install an OS on it (at worst just use the XP CD and delay activation or the Vista DVD without entering a product key to get the 30 day trial).
  2. Then mount the VHD from the backup as an additional disk to the image. I suggest mounting a copy of the VHD or making the VHD readonly.
