Q: I noticed that some pictures are missing from my Windows 7 PC. I'd like to see if they've been saved in my several years' worth of "system image backups," which duplicate everything on my PC to an external hard drive.
But I see it's not that easy. The backups don't seem to identify the individual files they contain, so I can't be sure the pictures I need are there. In addition, using one of these backups would restore my entire PC to the way it was, say, two years ago. This seems both tedious and dangerous. Is there an easier way to recover my pictures?
