    Problem mounting Macrium backup image

    My system is Windows 10 and I am running Macrium Reflect v6.3.1835 for backups.
    I have two partitions - one for the OS and one for Data and I have scheduled regular
    FULL backups of both partitions, which are written to an external HDD. I am having
    trouble trying to mount one of the OS images in order to inspect and possibly restore
    a file by copy and paste

    On the Macrium main page restore tab all available images are shown and I have selected
    one of the OS images to be mounted. Clicking on Browse Image then selecting the image
    to be mounted shows 'N/A' under the Drive Letter heading with no apparent means of
    changing it. Clicking on Restore Image opens a window showing the correct source image,
    and in the destinations section it shows my two partitions plus two others - Recovery
    and Dell Utility. Advancing to the Next window (Restore Summary) indicates the restore
    partition will have drive letter 'C'. Goimg back to the previous page and clicking
    Restore Partition Properties enables the drive lettr to e changed. Clicking on Finish
    displays a window stating the 'C' drive is in use and the restore cannot continue and
    suggests using Windows PE.

    What am I not doing or doing wrongly? On rare occasions in the past I have mounted
    images without any problems.

    Download and try the V7 Free. I seem to recall a fix for some mounting problem and may be what you are getting. I used to use the paid versions of V5 and V6 but now using the V7 Free and no issues, so far.

    I only do full backups of the complete hard drive (all partitions) rather than two backups as you do. It takes a little longer to do the disc image but if a restore is needed its easier to just do one restore rather than two or more.
