Windows: Mount VHD-file (virtual hard disk) via Right-Click

Filed under: Windows — Tags: , , , , , , — Christopher Kramer @ 12:18

You might know .vhd-files from Virtual PC or Windows Backup. In case you need to access a file from such a virtual hard drive, you can easily mount it in Windows.

It is possible via drive manager, but today I found a solution that is even a lot easier: Just right click a vhd-file and select to mount the file via “send to”.

Here is the tutorial including the necessary batch scripts:

  2. Simple VHD Manager is portable freeware which helps VHD users simplify some of these operations:
    – You can easily create VHD/VHDX files
    – You can attach and detach VHD/VHDX/ISO files via drag and drop
    – You can permanently attach a virtual hard disk in Windows 10 , Windows 8,1 , Windos 8, Windows 7
    – You can easily add and/or remove VHD/VHDX/ISO files to the boot menu
