I am encountering again this issue, this time with no workaround so far. I have created an image of a Win 7 PC (system+data). When I mount the image on another PC (Win 8.1 and also Win 10 on a third PC), I cannot enter the C:\Users Folder. Formerly, using XYplorer or Total Commander in admin mode solved this, but not this time.
Is there a workaround ? I have no longer access to the original PC (SSD has been reformatted and a fresh system installed). Maybe restoring the image onto an external HDD, then I can change the permissions ?
Thanks for your help,
