usually you can use that third party software to explore what is inside the image. If you say about making an extra partition you can try using partition magic to take whatever free space you have to make another partition and assign a drive letter to it. But i think that it will not solve the problem as i think clone images. Need to be cloned back to that same size hdd or something since when cloning it probably has taking the space used by what and what free space into consideration but i'm not really sure.
