As it seems to be a fairly common question, here is a guide on how to extract your clockworkmod recovery images.
This can come handy if you only want to extract certain apps, or files.
  1. Put your Clockworkmod images in a folder on your computer.
  2. Download this and put it in there, too.
  3. Extract it in there.
  4. Open a cmd-prompt in this folder.
  5. Use this command to extract your data:
    Code:
    unyaffs.exe img_name_to_extract.img
  6. Wait. the tool will display "end of image" when it is done.
  7. Done. The data should be in the same directory as the tool is.

If you want to restore your contacts:
Extract the data.img
Your contacts will be in:
Code:
\data\com.android.providers.contacts\databases
I have not written the program used in this guide, just found it on my harddrive.

I first had to download and install cgwin1.dll from here http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dl....shtml?cygwin1 and place it in the windows directory to get this to work. But after proceeding I get a "broken image file" when trying this on recovery.img and same thing with boot.img.

I am simply trying to recover some data from this nandroid backup specifically pictures in the sdcard/DCIM directory but I have no idea where it is. Is it located somewhere in the data.ext4.rar or system.ext4.rar files? If so I have looked through those and could not find a DCIM directory of any kind. Would anyone be kind enough to direct me?

Thanks

You won't be able to do that. The recovery does not backup the sdcard.
