You don't have to write the image back to a drive to use it. You can mount the image as if it were a drive and pull files from it. I wouldn't run chkdisk or any other program to try to fix a broken filesystem on the image unless I made a copy of it first. If you can't mount the filesystem because it is not intact, you can still try to data carve files from it.
So my question is, what do I do with the disc image after it's done?
Everything I've read says that I should restore it to a new clean drive and
run chkdsk against it. But I don't know how to restore it to that drive and
am worried I'll be in the same boat as I was when I copied drive to drive.
Anyone have any ideas on how I should proceed? THANK YOU SO
