    Image based backup software for mounting volumes

    Other than Ghost, True Image, and (I ASSuME) Save and Restore, which
    image based backup programs can mount the backed up volumes, so the volumes can be treated
    as normal volumes in Windows Explorer.

    I am talking about mounting, not just recovering files.

    I use an old copy of DriveImage 7.0 and this can mount an image file as a normal volume.

    Re: Image based backup software for mounting volum

    The only other imaging program I've ever run across, but have NEVER tried, so you'll have to dig out the answer on mounting: Drive Image Backup Software for Windows - Image for Windows. The only reason I ever read about it is that Fred Langa has written about "BootItNG" on a few occasions in his weekly newsletter.

    (These days one has to be careful to distinguish words such as "drive image" or "true image" from PRODUCTS that bear those words in their names!)

    Thanx.

    That software has evolved into TeraByte's product.

    Howard, as you seem to add lots of posts about Ghost any chance you can comment on my post from a few weeks back <!post=Virtual PC/Ghost,579360>Virtual PC/Ghost<!/post>
    please?

    If you have an answer can you post it there so as not to cause a cross post, thanks
    Jerry

    I think that Drive Image "merged" with Ghost, but I'm not really sure.

    It's definitely still available in my box of CDs, but I guess you meant can you still buy a licensed copy. A quick search of ebay found it here.
