mount a volume

The ability to see and use a volume within a recovery point that is physically located somewhere else on the network. The volume has a drive letter assigned to it, so it looks like it is a part of the local computer system. Though a mounted volume is read-only, you can open files and folders, scan for viruses, and even run some executables from within a mounted volume.
