    I have created images of hard disks on a External USB Hard Drive. I would like to manage these Images by viewing the Image Files using Windows Explorer.
    When I view the External USB Hard Drive in Windows Explorer none of the Image Files are visible. The drive looks completely empty. Why aren't the image files visible? How can I view these files?

    The image files are inside yellow folders.

    If you let paragon use default naming , they look like this:

    arc.jpg


    Inside those folders are the actual files , they look like this:

    arc-contents..jpg

    Windows cannot see inside the image files.

    You can use Paragon File transfer wizard or Paragon Volume Explorer ( one or both of those is included in your paragon product - depending which paragon product you have ) to see the image contents and copy out any individual bits - if you want to do so.

    If yo can't see any folders on your external drive - either the contents of that drive are hidden in some way - or it is empty.

    You could go to windows cotrol panel >folder options and make sure hidden files and protected operating system files are showing.

    See if that helps.
