    ok so maybe I get this wrong. I thought I could put in my last archived CD hit explore image and I would see what is on there. All I get is "cannot assign a drive letter to a partition from the image archive"

    Sometimes I get "corrupted file" but I did verify all 4 discs and they were ok.

    I am using TI 8.0 I did the update but files were not there or it couldn't open or something so I just re-installed from the disc.

    I'm sure it must just be some misunderstanding on my part but I thought I could explore what is on the verified CD.

    I believe you need to copy all the TIB files to one location. You can't mount a backup as a drive letter if it's split across several discs.

    Hello bbhd,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis True Image (

    We regret to inform you that it is not possible to explore the image on CDs or DVDs. However, you may follow wdormann's suggestions and copy all the parts of the image to a single folder on your hard disk. This will allow you to explore the image.

    Thank you.
