Restore a Winclone Image to a Disk Image

You are here:

Winclone 6 introduced restoring to a disk image directly in Winclone.  After you create an image of your Boot Camp partition, it is helpful to restore the image to verify that the data can be restored successfully.  Also, if you need to grab some user files from a Winclone image, you can restore to a disk image and grab just those files. After you restore to a disk image, you can view and copy the files that were restored.  You can’t boot from a disk image, but you can verify that the data is restored without issue and view the files.

and then the restore will start:


Once the restore is complete, you can view the files in the Finder by selecting the Disk Image.
