Map images as a single drive letter to explore "Unused/Non partitioned" disk space or map specific drive letters to any or all partitions within the image files.

Practical uses for Mount Image Pro
Providing Image Files to 3rd Parties
Mount Image Pro does not require a EnCase to be installed or present when mounting an EnCase image. Police departments, government departments, lawyers, accountancy firms and bankruptcy firms are using Mount Image Pro to share forensic images with relevant parties in a cost effect and secure manner.
Although EnCase is regarded as one of the front line computer forensics tools, a user must rely on complex e-scripts to "carve" data from unallocated space. After mounting an EnCase image with Mount Image Pro, a user can run data recovery software such as Recover My Files to extract deleted files from the image. Using RecoverMyFiles on mounted images is the equivalent to running over 300 different EnScripts!
Text Keyword Search
Once an image has been mounted a keyword search tool, such as Google Desktop, Yahoo Search or X1 can be run over the mounted image to index all files in the image. The contents of the image can then easily be text searched by a third party, such as a lawyer or prosecutor.
Other Third Party Tools
Mount Image Pro enables the use of any third party software tool. Indeed Mount Image Pro technology has been integrated into other commercial applications, including forensic products from Backbone Security and WetStone.
