This post is a bit confusing. You say the MRIMG files you want to use to restore your system are on an external drive, but then you say they were originally in the Users folder, which would normally be on your C drive, and then you say they got deleted. So do you have the MRIMG files or not, and are they on an external hard drive or in your user profile folder? Or do you mean you’re trying to extract backups of OTHER files that got deleted from your Users folder out of these MRIMG files?
If you just want to extract certain files from the MRIMG backups rather than rolling your entire system back, then just select the desired backup and click Browse Image, then mount the partition(s) you want to view. At that point you can copy/paste whatever you want out of the mounted backup back to your hard drive.
If you want to use the MRIMG files to restore your entire system rather than just extract certain files, then boot your PC into Rescue Media and run the restore from there.
If you still have problems, it would be helpful to post the exact steps you’re performing and the exact error you’re seeing when you say MR acts as if no backup files exist. Ideally include a screenshot of the error.
