How do I mount an NTFS image created by NTFS-3G NTFSclone on Windows? Neither the gnuwin32 version of NTFSclone nor Cygwin’s
mount seem to be capable.
If you just need to read an image, 7-zip should do it, believe it or not. The file manager UI should let you view the contents or extract, the
7z.exe command-line tool should let you extract it too.
Proof since this got downvoted despite being right, in a changelog.
If you actually need to write, or make the system think it's a real disk, I think OSFMount may be the only option. It is free (as in free beer, if you want that distinction made).
I'm using PassMark OSFMount, as it's a simple no-nonsense utility perfect for temporary mounts. It doesn't register itself with the system start up or install an icon to the system tray.
I am not sure if your NTFS images will be compatible, but you might want to try:
If you want a write access, be sure to uncheck the read-only flag during mounting.
ImDisk might mount it, but you may have to fuss with the settings to get it to work.
