How to Mount Clonezilla Image in Windows ..or nix

Hi Experts,

I have a Clonezilla backup image of a laptop hard drive that i need to check something on. I basically need to check if a particular file was already corrupted when the image was taken.

So i would like to know if it is possible to mount the image in Windows somehow so i can view the contents and extract files without having to restore the entire image to a physical/virtual machine. Much like what you can do when using Ghost images and their explorer utility

Included is a screen shot of the image files. Imaged using the default options in Clonezilla which results in a .aa file extension.

I would also be open to booting into a Linux distro if it is just not possible on Windows. Some instructions on this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks all

Gabe

This seems to be only possible using nix

Something like partclone-utils for Windows is what i am after

Thanks nobus, i will keep that in mind for the future. I don't think there is a Windows way with Clonezilla so i am going to close this and award points to maeltar for showing me how to do it in Linux. Thanks very much guys! Happy New Year :)
