Invalid/corrupt image file

I get this error when trying to restore an image.  Can anyone help out here?

    Thank is unfortunate to hear about your Backupper image.adi file having this restore error.
    Could you screenshot what happens if you do BU > Check Image?
    What BU version are you on?
    Can you confirm you have done all Windows updates, including optional updates?
    Please copy the BU image.adi file to a partition with filesystem ExFat and then try to restore again, this will confirm this issue is not a user permissions error.
  • @Parkerman, Is it full backup? or incremental backup? How many backup versions are there? Could you try to select the previous backup version to restore?
  • @admin This image.adi file was created with an older version of Backupper on one of my laptops.  I have the most up to date version of BU on a different PC and it gives this error when attempting to browse the .adi image.  Should I just use the recovery.iso to restore the image.adi to a new hard drive?  
  • @parkerman, Is there one .adi file? no other backup versions? It might be that the backup image file is damaged, you can't restore it again.
  • This issue of not being able to restore backups as there is 'no image file' and Aomei saying the file is corrupt so tough luck is completely unacceptable.  I see posts from 2017 with this same issue.  It is nonsense that ALL my backups are corrupt.  Full backups and partials.  Aomei, you must make a repair and recovery tool.  Now.  Today.  Please.
