How to mount bin file images??

I recently had my original A4000 failed hard drive professionally backed up,. They made a byte by byte backup onto an USB 3 hard drive, and created a. Bin file image on a USB stick for me. Is there a way of mounting this bin image either on my A4000 or via an emulator like Winuae??

I have tried opening it with UltraISO, but it says its an un recognised format. Also used Daemon tools light to mount it, but it says the file is empty.

If it's a true raw image of the hard drive, WinUAE should be able to mount it as a hardfile. Make a copy of the file, give it a .hdf extension, and add it to WinUAE. Make sure you set it as a whole-drive image and not just a single partition.
