Hard disc image -how to view

  conradwebster 16:21 26 May 14

My Acronis True image Home 2009 stopped working so I did a hard disc image copy to an external drive using Windows 8.1. When I look at the copy, instead of an exact copy as with Acronis they are odd file names and on opening the largest file a pop up says "This disc image is not initialised, etc. Please use disk management snap-in to make sure disk, etc is in a usable state." What does all that mean please?
