Paraben's P2 eXplorer

Paraben’s P2 eXplorer allows you to mount almost any forensic image or hard drive and explore it as though it were a drive on your machine while preserving the forensic nature of your evidence. In fact, P2 eXplorer is one of the only programs that mounts images as logical and physical disks. This means all the deleted, slack, and unallocated space is accessible. An image isn’t just mounted to view logical files; it is mounted as an actual bit-stream image, preserving unallocated, slack, and deleted data. P2X is easy to use and most importantly, it’s free.
