Since you've already got GetDataBack, you may as well use that.

This will help us understand its structure. Is the IMG file the same size as the original physical drive? If not, then perhaps it is compressed, in which case you would need GetDataBack to decompress it. Score 0 Can't find your answer ? Ask !
