    Opening up a MRIMG file with a mac
    After converting to a Mac a few months ago I created a disk image with with Macrium Reflect to help facilitate my migration. I saved the Disk Image file on my External Hardrive and now I want to access that particular image. Can anyone help, perhaps lead me to a program that I can use to browse that image so I can extract what I need?

    thanks

    Since there is no Mac version of Macrium Reflect, there is nothing that will access that image. Proprietary Win-only solutions = bad.

    Additionally, the Windows-based imaging tools are designed to work with an MBR and BIOS setup that you would see in a typical PC. Although the tool may run from a Boot Disc, you're not getting a solid backup.

    I use and recommend SuperDuper! for this purpose. Additionally, I use Two Canoes WinClone to backup my Boot Camp partition.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Only ways I can see to access that image are going to be:

    A) Installing Windows and possibly Macrium Reflect.

    B) Possibly try using their Linux Rescue CD - see if your Mac will boot from that and may give you access to the files - it probably is not going to have write capability to your HFS formatted OS X partition though.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
