I've looked all over Google, but i don't think think what i may be asking is possible I prefer the software acronis true image over Ghost. Yes i own my legal legit copy. But is lacking a major feature i can't deal without. Similar to Norton Ghost with Ghost explorer. Ghost typically creates .gho files, and ghost explorer can open this, and selectively extract certain files. This is the function i am looking for, to be able to not restore the whole ghost image, but just certain files. Yes i am aware Acronis true image once installed on a windows machine, can open .tib images as a normal explorer windows within windows. However it isn't portable. So this means to machines i carry over the proper files, i would have to install Acronis true image suit over, install. Is there any way to open these .TIB files, and use some kind of portable executable to open this?
