    Of course you could. External or internal does not matter. I do use an internal SSD but always have extra copy on an external. However, it is safer to backup to an external in case if you have Virus attack or have you ever heard of Ransomware ? which they can encrypt all your data from all drives and require you to pay a ransom to decrypt, and that's one of the reason I always suggest to backup to an external.

    To mount the image as a Virtual drive, just double click on the image (.mrimg extension). A Windows will popup, check which one you want to mount, click OK. Look in "This PC". You should have the drive mounted. To unmount, Right click on the drive->Unmount:

    Yes using your method, I could mount the "mrimg extension's" just fine after you showing how you do this. Never new we could do that with Macrium Reflect!! Nice feature. Your video is ok too, but I do my backups always from my usb 3.0 rescue disk, that I made with MR. I just prefer to make my image backups from bootable usb stick instead of from my C-Drive. But I learned something new today on how to pick and choose what file or folders to mount using MR!!
    I like that method....a lot.

    The problem I was talking about thou, is mounting an ISO file, using a different method to mount. Which in my case doesn't show up even as a choice. I know why, I believe its because I use WinRAR and it blocks my choice to even see that option on my file explorer menu. No big deal really, as I am NOT going to remove WinRAR, as its a paid registered app, that I bought long time ago. Thanks for the info on MR topgundcp

    Yes, Windows built in "Mount" option will be disabled when you install a third party software to avoid any conflict. I use "Ultra ISO" since it offers more options, I could create/modify/mount an ISO file with ease.

    After having been a long time user of Acronis TI and Shadowprotect Desktop. I found exactly what I wanted in Macrium Reflect Home. Been a user since 2012 and it has never let me down. As of now, MR is the standard by which I judge other backup and imaging programs. MR Home Version 6 is really fast.

    Shadowprotect is also very reliable but Storagecraft's flaky activation policies are a massive turn off for blokes like myself who perform clean installs every 3-4 months. Not to forget Shadowprotect is expensive in comparison to other solutions. They target Corporations not small home users like me.

    As for Acronis, what can I say? A great backup program that's now evolved into a real mess whilst trying to behave like a Swiss Army knife. And then TI version 2016 has no log viewer. Seriously, Acronis have lost their way.
