    Default System image on External hard drive is not accesible while restoring PC from image

    OS: Windows 7 Home Premium

    The windows system image backed up on my external hard drive (2TB WD USB3) is not showing while restoring the PC from an image.

    The only option available is my hard drive partition on which i also had saved a system image.

    What is the reason?
    Though windows recommends External hard drive for backing up image when backing up the system.
