I have an Encase Image in e01 file format etc.

I can mount the image fine with mount image pro etc.

I am trying to add the image to Vmware workstation but am unsuccessful.

I am running vmware on windows 7.

Any help on this would be appreciated.

Apologies if this type of question has been posted before.

Thanks

How do you try to add it?

My guess is that Mount Image Pro is not quite able to make it look like a \\.\PhysicalDriveX (try 'wmic diskdrive list brief' to check). Or something.

EnCase 6 had a couple of add-ons that allowed e01 images to be mounted in Windows. If you have EnCase, look around.

Otherwise, you might try FTK Imager, which is another useful mounting tool.

If it doesn't work, the only thing I can think of is to restore the e01 image to a drive that VMWare *can* mount. That shouldn't be too difficult -- essentially bring the e01 image inside as vmware machine to which you add the new vmdk drive. If you do this in a Linux environment, check out the xmount utility.

Thank you for this information. I am trying to open an E01 image in ftk imager and to no avail. It states the evidence is not valid. I am using VMWare fusion with Win 7, I will try this method.
