Let me see if I understand your issue. You make a image and then restore it and it does not see previously seen network drives that are on another system.

Did I get that right?

What are you using to make the image?

Turn off the UAC (user account controls) in control panel/Users on both machines and make sure network discovery and file sharing are turned on. control panel/metworking.

I take it you are trying to backup the network shares via the win7 laptop?

If you are making a system image you will only get the local not networked drives
