    How do I use NOD32 ver2 to scan files inside a hard disk drive [HDD]
    image file such as ACRONIS True Image ver 9 or 10?
    These *.tib files are large, one or more gigabytes. Using a virus scanner such as
    KASPERSKY declares these files CLEAN but I think the image file probably contains the INFECTED email backup files that were actually really INFECTED on my PC.

    Each image file can be mounted. Must I mount each large image file and then scan that virtual file? Is there a way that NOD32 can perform a scan on this type of file effectively and part of a normal scan?

    Thank you, Dave_S

    neither kaspersky nor nod32, and most likely other AVs can't scan tib files. they are in a proprietary format used by acronis.
    the only way is to mount it.
