Virtual objects created in the Device view pane of R‑Studio can be mounted in the system as read-only virtual drives. Such virtual drives become accessible to the system and to other programs. Moreover, such virtual drives remain mounted after R‑Studio has been closed.

|2||Select the mount type on the Mount as a virtual drive dialog box and click the OK button.|
Physical drive : The virtual drive will be mounted as a read-only virtual physical drive. Windows will search for partitions on it, and if it finds any with supported file systems, it will assign disk letters to them. Recommended if the drive should be accessible to the host Windows and other programs in the system. If the data on the drive is severely damaged, it may slow down, lock, or even crash the host Windows.
Partition : The virtual drive will be mounted as a read-only partition with a virtual partition table created by R‑Studio . Recommended if the drive should be accessible only to another data recovery program.
Select the disk letter for the virtual drive if the virtual drive is mounted as a partition. The letter may be assigned automatically by the system, specified manually, or the virtual drive may have no letter at all. The latter is recommended if you don't want Windows to analyze the data on the drive.
