    Hi, Army of One

    Welcome to Wilders and Acronis Forums.

    I not sure what you mean, you can copy files and folders from a mounted Image but you can not edit [change, delete, or add files to a mounted Image]

    But you can delete the Image, once you have dismounted it.

    Take Care,

    Hello Army of One,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis True Image (http://www.acronis.com/homecomputing/products/trueimage/).

    When you mount the image all the files there are in read-only mode. You cannot edit or delete any files in the image as well as add anything to it. However you may create the incremental image to take into account recent changes on disk.

    Thank you.
