    I have a question about Vista's Complete Backup option...
    1. Why does it uses a VHD + XML Files instead of WIM ?
    2. If Bitlocker was enabled, Is there any way someone could read from the
    VHD File ?

    3. Is there a way to not only mount the VHD file but put it in a VM Machine
    and run it ?

    I hope someone will clear this out for me...

    Hi there,

    today it is not possible to use the VHD as boot drive in VPC but you can
    mount it as drive in a running VPC and access you files very easily.
    I do not know the reason why it is not bootable but maybe this will change
    in future releases :)
