Overview

About Mount Image Pro™

Mount Image Pro mounts forensic image files as a drive letter under Windows, including .E01, Ex01, .L01, Lx01 and .AD1. This enables access to the entire content of the image file, allowing a user to:

  • Browse and open content with standard Windows programs such as Windows Explorer and Microsoft Word.
  • Run third party applications over the mounted file system.
  • Export files.

Mounted data remains in a forensically secure environment where the content of the image file is not changed.

Mount Image Pro includes proprietary drivers that enable access to all image content, including system files, deleted files and unallocated clusters.

Mount image Pro has full command line capabilities and is frequently used as the engine by which third party applications gain access to forensically acquired data.
