Question says most of it. I was looking at using the WD-based Acronis software.
Thanks for any help
EDIT: Just for anyhone’s info I did check the Acronis site, and it says
“A full-system backup image isn’t just a huge pile of ones and zeros. With Acronis’ Mount Image feature, you can temporarily transform this image into a virtual drive, which lets you access and browse all your folders just like a real, physical drive. Drag and drop your files wherever you want without having to reboot or restore the image. It’s like having direct access to your old system.” B ut that’s the latest paid version, so I am just wondering.
