Is VSC recoverable from HD using different computer?

When I re-installed Windows 7, I realized that I did not backup some of my important files. I recovered gigs of data including system restore files. Some of the files are corrupted. I was wondering if it is possible to open VSC (Volume Shadow Copy) files on different computer?

It actually stands for Volume Shadow Copy. – SLaks Feb 11 '11 at 20:49

Shadow Explorer is a handy tool to browse what is there. It would probably work if you mounted the drive inside another computer as a secondary drive.
