Reset Windows Password:

Mounting virtual drives


This dialog allows you to mount a disk image to the system as a virtual drive. You can then refer to the new drive by its volume letter. Images are mounted as read-only so that the original file is not altered (the OSFMount tool is used to mount virtual drives). Thus, after mounting a VMWare disk image, for example, you can refer to it by its drive letter and perform non-writable operations upon it, like the hash dump or password lookup. However, the password reset will take no effect on the read-only drives.

If the initial image file contains 2 or more disk partitions, you should set the appropriate option and show a partition number you need to mount.

The following image formats are supported: AF*, BIN, DD, E01, FLP, IMG, ISO, NRG, S01, SDI, VHD, VMDK, and some others.

To stop using a virtual drive, just select it in the list and click the 'Unmount' button. All mounted drives will be unmounted automatically upon exit.

Be patient, mounting some image types may take up to several minutes.
 
If you need to attach a BitLocker-encrypted image, first mount the image file and then unlock it using a known recovery password or key.
