Explore Image: This option enables backup images to be mounted in a similar way to when an external drive is attached to your computer.

This can be useful if you want to peruse the contents of a backup image.

To do so, go to your My Computer/This PC app/icon to find the newly assigned drive letters along with your regular drives. You can then access them in the way you do a normal drive.

NOTE: Exploring images that contain multiple partitions will present multiple drive letters in order to mount each partition.
