Is there a Mount Image tool for Acronis True Image 2010 home edition? I do not want to install the software, just view contents of a .tib file created with Acronis True Image 2010 home?

You can also use a disk-imaging product that will image the whole disk to another.
However, such products do not compress the hard disk.
Disk compression normally requires a proprietary backup format.
