# Can I view/copy the contents of an img file from Windows?

I have a backup .img file of an old Raspbian installation that I used to have running as a webserver. I'm unable to get the Raspberry Pi to boot from it any more, I think due to running out of space on the card but I could be wrong on that.

This backup has an old Wordpress website on it which I'd like to recover. So I'm wondering is there any way to access the contents, either from Windows? There is a similar question which covers this on a Linux system, but is it possible from Windows?

Download Ext for Windows and then mount img file and you will see the contents of mounted image.
Alternatively, use DiskInternals' Freeware Linux Reader for Windows (as I was unable to figure out how to mount .img files with Paragon's ExtFS for Windows).
It also turns out that 7zip can extract a .img file just like any other archive file:
7z x raspian.img
