    I have a trial version of Drive Backup 10 Professional. I create an archive of my C drive to a folder on the D drive (second internal harddrive) no problem. However, after creation, even though it shows up in the database I am unable to mount the archive. The command is greyed out in the archive dropdown menu.
    I have hopefully selected it properly by clicking on it in the database.

    I have the same problem with Hard Disk Manager 2009 and Drive Backup 10 Suite. I am using Windows 7

    If I understand it, mounting the archive it will shjow up as a new drive which will allow me to look inside the created archive and copy folders/files from the archive to the C Drive

    You can use the File Transfer Wizard, or the Restore Wizard to copy files back from an archive image.

    Hope it helps.

    Afraid it didn't - the program has an option to mount an archive. Can't figure why cos it doesn't work (for me anyway). The options suggested above just want to do a full restore it seems rather than the ability to copy a file or folder from an archive mounted as a drive to the C Drive - I think I'll give up and look elsewhere

    The File Transfer Wizard is your best option, it is specifically designed for this purpose and does not do a full restore.

    When you navigate to the archive file in the wizard, double click on it (it may not have a + sign, but is expandable), this should show you the files inside and allow you to select and move them to the clipboard for extraction.
