Recovering .vhd files


Honorable Member
I converted an Acronis True Image .tib file to a .vhd file. It is now on my Windows 7 hard drive. When I go to Windows 7 Backup & Restore, the .vhd file cannot be found.
Supposedly, I can mount this .vhd file. How do I do it. Thanks.

Regarding VHD File

To open a .VHD File in Windows 7

Virtual Hard Disk (.VHD) file are used by Virtual PC and Virtual Server, and created by Windows Back-Up when you make a system image back-up. If you ever need to access a file contained within a .VHD you can do it using the Disk Management Tool built into Windows 7. Just follow these steps:

1) Click Start, Right Click Computer, and then click Manage.
2) Expand Storage and then click Disk Management.
3) Click the Action Menu, and then Click Attach ,VHD
