HP recovery backup containing .wim and split files with extentions .0, .1, .2,...

How do you recover/open backup containing .wim files + split files.

 

Backup folder contains following sequence of files.

0.wim, 1.wim, 2.wim, ...334.wim, 335.0, 335.1, 335.2, ... 335.36, 335.DAT, RecoveryMgr.exe, RecoveryMgr.ini

 

The size of files 335.0 - 335.36 is 200MB. They are not recognized neither by HP Recovery Manager, nor by 7-zip.

 

The restore in general works the same with both tools, but there is the problem:

after restore AVCHD files are missing, though all .AVI, .WMV files are recovered correctly.

 

Your help would be much appreciated! Thanks Alvydas

Have you tried clicking the .exe file in the backup folder? That should start the extraction of files to a folder on your C: drive where you can then move them to proper location. The exe may take quite awhile to appear to be working if you you have a large backup size.

Yes, I did.

Both ways (initiating retore by clicking exe in backup folder; using 7-zip software) gave same result - recreated the C: structure. However the folder where AVCHD files supposed to be stored is empty. Files are not hidden, but they are simply missing.
