    how do I install files from back up dvd


    I reinstalled windows 8 and in the process made a back up dvd of all my personal files etc. I reinstalled windows 8 and inserted the dvd. When I opened the file it had a lot of wim files and 2 recovery manager files. How do I go about reinstalling these files on my computer? Thank you.

    Hi hwally, Welcome to 8 forums.

    Follow this link. Mount and Modify an Image Using DISM

    In the link you will get the option on how to mount and use wim (Window imaging format) files.

    Hope this helps.
