The “System Recovery” plug-in creates a precise copy of your system, which can be used for making a bootable drive (for example, with a Handy Backup Disaster Recovery utility) and restoring your system from scratch when the need emerges.

Browsing a System Recovery Disk for Specified Data

Browsing a System Recovery Disk for Specified Data

Some file-management tools allow opening the VHD files to browse the content for specified files, folders or other data. Therefore, you have no need to recover system totally to find just a couple of files you need. Instead, you can open the system recovery disk as a VHD file and pick data from it.
