    I had my C drive, Windows XP installed on it, NTFS. Then I backed up my C drive into an acronis true image. That image is safe on my other hdd.
    Now I have ubuntu linux installed, on my ex C drive.
    I need to extract some data from that image I made.
    How do I do it under ubuntu linux? Can I mount it like I do in Windows, or what?
    Any help??
    Cheers!

    The TI image file can only be opened by TI, so you'd have to have a Linux version of TI installed to open it.

    It might be easier to boot from the TI Recovery CD you made in Windows and restore the image to another drive. You would then have an uncompressed disk with all your data on it in Windows format.

    Have you tried booting to the TI CD and restoring the files you need from your image?
