Is there any way to compare the contents of the tib file with the original drive/directory to ensure that all files date, size, etc. match?

Diane, welcome to these public User Forums.

The answer to your question is 'it depends!'.

If you are working with a backup of Disks & Partitions then this could be Mounted to a Windows drive letter to allow you to use any file comparison application.

If you are working with a backup of Files & Folders, then this has no partitions to allow Mounting to be used, so the only method to compare the contents would be either manually after opening the file in Explorer, or else having to restore the file to a spare disk drive before being able to use any file comparison software.
