Reading a VHD File

If you ever need to read a vhd file for reasons like you lost the password for your vpc etc there's a cool feature in Windows 7 using which you can mount the vhd file on your hard disk. 
You can do so by following the steps below 
1) Open Computer Management 
2) Go to Storage -> Disk Management and click on it
3) Once the Panel opens you can right click on Disk Management and you would see an option called Attach VHD 

4) Click on Attach VHD option. It will popup a dialog asking for location of your VHD
5) Browse to you VHD select and click OK on the dialog and Voila all the data on your VHD is mounted as a partition on your machine. 

Have fun :)
