iSCSI target service allows mounting of any storage object to operating system as a virtual SCSI disk and complete data recovery operations with system or third-party software (copying files, decryption, decompression etc.). Tested with mounting file systems to Windows, Linux and Mac. Also virtual disk can be processed with third-party software (tested using R-Studio).
