Mounting an image
Mounting volumes from a disk backup (image) lets you access the volumes as though they were physical disks. Multiple volumes contained in the same backup can be mounted within a single mount operation. The mount operation is available when the console is connected to a managed machine running either Windows or Linux.
Mounting volumes in the read/write mode enables you to modify the backup content, that is, save, move, create, delete files or folders, and run executables consisting of one file.
Limitation: Mounting of volume backups stored on Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 Storage Node is not possible.
To mount an image, perform the following steps.
Specify the path to the archive location and select the archive containing disk backups.
Select the backup.
[Optional] Provide credentials for the archive location. To access this option, select the Advanced view check box.
Select volumes to mount and configure the mount settings for every volume: assign a letter or enter the mount point, choose the read/write or read only access mode.
When you complete all the required steps, click OK to mount the volumes.
