I have four files that were split up into *.swm files, & this image has multiple images inside it.
Now, i want to get back the original *.WIM file - with ALL the 7 images inside it.
How?

imagex.exe offered only to split, & not to obtain the merged WIM back again (i dont want to create a wim using index number of one of the images inside, i want to bring back all of them, as it originally was).

@MAVERICKS CHOICE
Here's an example of how to restore one of the images inside a WIM, or a split-up-WIM:
imagex /apply WindowsNT6-buildnumber.store.swm [image number] [destination path]

You'd find that to extract Vista starter edition alone from the WIM on the RTM dvd, you'd use this command:
imagex.exe /apply v:\sources\install.wim 1 c:\test

This does exactly what you want

To merge SWM files use this command

imagex /ref source*.swm /check /export source.swm 1 target.wim "UniqueName"

Thanks obsteel !
the number "1" would mean that only one of the images will be extracted into a WIM. Is there anyway to get all of it though?
