If this is an image file from a previous version of Windows I don't think you can.
You should use the Windows Easy Transfer Wizard to save data from a previous OS to Windows 7 if you still have the old OS installed.

Thanks for the reply Jonmor68. I did use the Transfer Wizard in Windows XP and it made the file along with three other files( IMG00002.DAT, IMG00003.DAT, Status. The Transfer Wizard if Windows 7 will not open them.

You need to use the one from Windows 7 not XP as it's not compatible.
Here is a guide on how to use the W7 Wizard in XP:
