Connect an Image as a Virtual Logical Disk
Note: You can connect images only as read-only disks. See Support for Various Disk Partition Schemes and File Systems for the list of supported file systems.
To connect an image as a Virtual Logical Disk:
R-Drive Image will show you the Image File Selection panel with the disks/folders structure.
When you click the file, you may view its content on the right pane.
You may also connect the disk from Windows explorer by right-clicking the required image file with the .rdr extension and selecting Connect as Virtual Disk from the shortcut menu.
If you select an image with incremental data backup, the Image Date/Time Selection panel will appear. Select the date and time of image creation and click the Next button.
If the image file is password-protected, the Password prompt... message will appear. Enter the password and click the OK button.
You may select only one object at a time, and you need to specify its drive letter to proceed further.
You may also create a script for this action. Click the Script to Clipboard button and paste the script to any text-processing utility
When the disk is connected, the Virtual disk(s) connected successfully message will appear.
Note: While R-Drive Image is connecting an image, Windows itself may install additional software required to run the virtual logical disks correctly. In this case follow Windows on-screen instructions.
