Feature Request - Sure Hardware Backup

Hi,
a nice feature could be the backup verification on the original hardware.
In virtual environment you could easily power off the original vm and restore the backup to a new vm to test functionality.
After testing you power off/delete the restored vm and power on the original vm.

Since windows 7 / Server 2008 R2 you can boot from a vhd file.
It would be cool if you could mount the backup file or restore the backup file as an vhd and boot from it.

Regards
Bernd

Bernd,
Yes, that is a good functionality but I doubt end users will use it – running FLR to check if you files are there is faster and does not require additional knowledge. Anyhow nice request – noted!
