I would like to apply windows wim images without disturbing the old files present in the partition.
Windows seems to do this while installing from regular windows CD.
But how to do this when manually applying windows images?
To be simple, make sure old files are there after image applied.
Note: Microsoft help page:
If you apply an image to a volume that has an existing Windows installation, files from the previous installation may not be deleted.
It says may not. What it means sometime old files will be gone? or it would be there?
