    Hi

    I am using Windows 8.1 Update and Windows ADK.

    I mounted a volume image to a directory with this command:

    Code:
    Dism /Mount-Image /ImageFile:"<WIM_File_Path>\<WIM_Name>.wim" /Index:<Image_Index> /MountDir:"<Mount_Directory_Path>"
    
    and I have changed it.

    Now, since I wanted to add this image changed at the same wim file, I used this command:

    Code:
    Dism /Append-Image /ImageFile:"<WIM_File_Path>\<WIM_Name>.wim" /CaptureDir:"<Mount_Directory_Path>" /Name:"<Image_Name>" /Description:"<Image_Description>" /CheckIntegrity /Verify
    
    but I get this error:

    Unable to access the file. The file is in use by another process.

    How come?

    Thanks

    Bye

    append-image is to capture an image, but append it to an existing wim file.
    There's no command to save the mounted image as a different index.

    You could in theory capture your mounted index to a different wim file and append-image again when you modify it, but it's easier (and faster) to export your saved image, remount and modify, save again, and re-export.
