Unhappy Most effective way to access contents inside DD image?


I barely managed to extract a DD image out of a hard disk that was falling apart.

What is the most effective way to access contents inside DD image? It is NTFS.

Is it

Code:
losetup --partscan --find --show disk.img

mount /dev/loop0p1 /mnt

Thanks a lot

Once the partition is mounted, the data are available for perusal. losetup and partx are commonly used.
Both are "effective".
