I'm trying to find out whether it's possible (or not) to create a wim file from a set of specific folder (C:\windows,C:\somethingelse,etc), and I was wonder if you guy could help me out ?

Thanks in advance.

why would you do that? – tony roth Jul 26 '10 at 18:16
@Tony roth, You would do that if you create an image in a subfolder then capture it to be redeployed. – Chris S Jul 26 '10 at 18:22
have not tried that yet, but almost makes sense! I think he may be asking about multiple source directories but I'm not sure. – tony roth Jul 26 '10 at 18:34

Yes. imagex /capture C:\Path\To\Folder C:\TheFile.WIM "Awesome Description"
