      It seems that when we run Windows Server backup it creates a VHD. So we see a folder that has

      \WindowsImageBackup\<ServerName>\<Backup datetime>\<guid name>.vhd file along with some xml config files.


      Is there a way to mount this VHD with powershell commands? For instance with Veeam you can mount the backup it creates very quickly as an alternative to restoring which takes time.  Once the backup is mounted you can explore it and copy from it.  Please note that I am referring to backups created by Windows Server backup so server operating systems not desktop OS.
