Recovery Media can't be moved (and other things...)

Hey everyone,

here's the problem: my aunt made a full backup on a machine running the "latest" Windows 7 version. She also created a recovery image and moved the files to an external hard disk. The old PC died, she bought a new one and wanted to restore her files using the veeam backup. I was able to copy all the files from her external HDD to my PC except for the recovery image. Sometimes it says "invalid ms dos function", other times it says "Error 0x800701E3".

Here's my question: how can I copy the recovery image to a USB stick or a CD? Can I use another recovery image made with the same Veeam Agent version? Or is there some other way to restore her files from the backup to the new machine?

Some facts: the old machine was a Samsung laptop from the last century with Windows 7, she used Veeam Agent for Windows Version 2.0.0.700 for creating the backup and the recovery image (.iso file). The new laptop is a Lenovo Ideapad 320 with Windows 10 version 1803. The external hard drive is a Seagate Backup Plus with 4TB.

Can anybody here help a noob? It would be much appreciated!

Thanks in advance and have a nice evening.

It's not possible to copy recovery partition. If computer was replaced - you can create a new recovery media instead of the old one (hardware was changed, so old media contains old drivers anyway).

Sounds like you don't need Bare Metal Restore at all. Install Veeam Agent for Window on new laptop and run File level recovery to restore the desired files to the fresh operating system.
