If I open the backup files, will they overwrite my current files and therefore lose data I have created since the backup? Thanx for the response.

Thanks, no matter how many boxes I checked to recover, the Recovery Manager failed at 69% or 78% (usually 78%)!! Tried 8 times with different boxes checked to recover different files.

Re: How do I open .wim file after backup?

My computer had to be restored after some windows problems. Prior to restore, all files were backed up.  Now, my computer back working as though new, buNow after restore when I open my back ups, I get all these files with the suffix .WIM. Some of these files are very large, so I guess they contain my backup data. But how do I open these files please?

Hello everyone.  I understand you're having trouble accessing the files on your backup discs.

Take a look at this thread and follow the steps.  It should allow you to access the files inside your *.WIM archives.

Have a great day!
