I'm in the process of installing Windoze (again) on my wife's computer. I typically use gparted as my boot disk and clean/wipe parititons. I'm paranoid of forgetting to copy something important from her drive before I reformat it, so I'd like to take a disk image. I know this can normally be accomplished with "partimage" as described here.
However, it seems that this image is not mountable. I will be putting it on an external WD USB Passport drive to keep as a backup for a couple of months. If I've missed something that's not recoverable from her nightly backup, then I want to mount the drive image and pull data off of it. Does anyone know of any *nix utilities that will do this?
