NovaBACKUP PC/Server/Business Essentials contains a feature to mount volumes (partitions) inside your Image Backup to a drive letter in Windows (as a Virtual Drive) to be able to perform single file restore of files from within a completed Image backup file (.NDF, .NDD, .NDI file extensions are supported). This method can also be utilized to verify that your Image Backup file is valid.
First of all you can only mount an Image Backup to a drive letter in Windows, as a virtual drive, if the image itself is stored on a locally connected storage device. Image Backups located on a network path cannot be mounted even though the file browsing interface allows you to browse to a network path to select the Image Backup, the image will not mount if it is located on a network path. Copy the Image Backup(s) to a locally connected storage device such as a USB hard drive in order to do this if that is the case.
