there are several ways to mount a partition which is within a diskimage file created for example with dd.
The first and hard way is to determine the offset of the partition start sector and mounting the disk by specifing the offset as parameter for the loop device.
You can use the file or fdisk command to examine the file. root@ubdev:/mnt/RaspberryPI # file 2012-07-15-wheezy-raspbian.img
2012-07-15-wheezy-raspbian.img: x86 boot sector; partition 1: ID=0xc, starthead 130, startsector 8192, 114688 sectors; partition 2: ID=0x83, starthead 165, startsector 122880, 3665920 sectors, code offset 0xb8
root@ubdev:/mnt/RaspberryPI # fdisk 2012-07-15-wheezy-raspbian.img

difficult Windows issue today. A user had the problem that he could not delete a Folder (C:\Temp\orders) , also renaming or moving is not possible. The same behaviour with the command line tools rmdir, ren and move.
The folder was created from Excel with a vba macro.
