Has anyone had any luck or know if EnCase can process an ADI image file? I can't find any documentation or a way to do it without mounting the image as a drive using 3rd party software.

ADI files produced by *what*?
If you mean this
http//www.disk-image.com/image_types.htm

.ADI are "backup images"

Backup Disk Images

A Backup Disk Image contains only data found in used sectors of a hard drive. This is done in order to reduce the size of the disk image file and to reduce the time it takes to create the disk image.

One Backup Disk Image archive can hold data from several partitions from one or more disks. When you select a partition to be backed up, all current data will be saved into the disk image archive.

Data that is recognized as deleted files and unused partition areas are not recorded into the image. Windows pagefiles and hibernation file data are also excluded from a Backup Disk Image because they contain temporary information which is useless to keep and restore.

My guess is that even if you manage to open it in Encase you won't find "much" in it. ?
