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!
