Deep Freeze virtual drive

My computer was running Deep Freeze 8.1 under Windows 7 OS. I created "D:\" as a thawed space or deep freeze virtual drive for my documents and "C:\" is the frozen volume. It worked fine until one day my HDD failed because of some bad sectors. I still can access my files if the HDD is attached as an external drive from another computer but it won't boot if attached to my computer.

The problem is: I need to access the files I've saved on the Thawed space!! I understand that this thawed space is a virtual drive in a file named Persis0.dsk (200GB) but I cannot find a way to mount it on another computer.

Unfortunately, Faronics does not provide utility to manually mount the thawed space in case such incident happens.

I've tried the following which did not work:
1. WinImage
2. all the xxxISO utilities
3. Norton
4. Microsoft disk manager
5. VMWare
6. Virtual Box

Anybody has any idea?

Thank you

Couldn't you simply reinstall Deep Freeze and remount d: as a thawed space in the new system?  I will admit that I am not familiar with the product.

The .dsk file is inside the hard-disk with bad  sectors?

If yes, you need a data recovery firm to do the recovery.
