    I Created a disk image for my computer with Macrium Reflect before sending it off to be worked on. The computer ended up being replaced with a new one. My old comp (an Asus G71g if your curious) was running vista and my new computer (Sony Vaio VPCF136FM/B) is running win7. Id like to keep running 7, but restore my old files and programs as well. Is there anyway to do that using the old disk image?
    Thanks!

    If you have marcium reflect installed,you may be able to
    browse the image and extract your files,but the programs
    are more than likely history as they install files in different
    locations including registry entries.
    Programs won't run without those and you can't just transfer them.
