Explore image refers to mount the backed up image file to a virtual partition, which can be previewed through My Computer. Also the files can be directly copied out to other partitions.

This option creates a virtual drive and mounts the image to it, similar to Daemon tools. After mounting the image you are able to explore its contents in "My Computer". You may copy and paste files in this virtual drive the same as for a physical drive.

To explore image:

  1. In the main Tab page, select Utilities and then select Explore Image.
  2. Explore Image
  3. Select the backup that you want to explore from the list box, and click Next to continue.
  4. Select Image
  5. Select a point-in-time and click the Next button to explore the backup at this time point.
  6. Select Time Point
  7. Assign a drive letter for the image partition, and click Next to mount the image.
  8. Assign Partition
  9. Wait for the process to complete and then click Finish. You may now explore the data in the created virtual partition using "Windows Explorer" or "My Computer".
  10. Finish

To Detach image:

After mounting the image, the program will create a virtual drive accessible in Windows Explorer. Once your necessary operations have been completed, it is advisable to detach the virtual drive.

  1. In the main Tab page, select Utilities, and then select Explore Image.
  2. All your current virtual drives will be listed here. Tick the appropriate box and then click Detach. The virtual drive will be cancelled immediately.
Tips: If you do not detach the virtual drives, they will automatically be detached when the computer is next rebooted.
