Let me please explain the scenario what I went through.
I have a Transcend SSD which I use to boot my PC which I upgraded from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1.
I have two other hard disk drives (one tera byte and other is 320 GB). Yesterday I received a notification from the SSD utility that there is a firmware update available. I read the instructions which came along it which stated that the drive will be completely erased if I update it. Naturally I had to backup the entire drive. I used the command :
wbAdmin start backup -backupTarget:F: -include:C: -allCritical -quiet
The F drive was my other hard drive of 320 GB (Single partition).
It took a while and came the message that the backup has been done successfully.
I made a system restore disk using the utility from the control panel.
I then made the firmware update usb drive by the utility provided and then booted from the USB and successfully updated the firmware.
Then I booted from the system restore disk I created earlier to restore my old image. However when I tried to restore it, it tried to restore it on my other hard drive instead. I then went to command prompt, used the
diskpart command and accidentally selected the wrong drive (the one which contained my backup) and used the
And there my whole backup was gone!
I then installed a fresh OS using my original DVD (of Windows 8) on the SSD. I tried the recovery tools and all I was able to recover is my VHDX file (which is usually inside the folders created by the
wbAdmin command). I tried mounting the image and thankfully it is safe and I can mount it.
Now the thing is that I want to write the complete VHDX file to my SSD so that I can get back my old and working OS.
Can anyone please help me with the things I have? I just have my VHDX file.
