Download of the Day: Virtual CloneDrive

Posted in Uncategorized by Simon Bisson on September 21, 2006

I find myself working with a lot of ISO files these days. It’s an easy way for software companies to ship betas and trial code. Most of the time, though, I don’t want to burn the disks to install the software. ISOs are disk images, and there are software tools to mount them as virtual drives on your PC.

Microsoft’s free tool is good, as is Daemon Tools. But they don’t work on Vista.

Then I came across Virtual CloneDrive. It’s small, free, and works on pretty much every Windows box and version I’ve tried it on – including Windows Vista RC1.

Well worth downloading.

I’m still not sure what it is with the sheep…

    I ended up installing Daemon Tools yesterday – could have done with that!

    Were I to observe, with amusement, that OS X has the ability to mount ISOs as volumes built-in, you’d probably hit me, right?

    Looks like it costs money ($39.00) after 21 days…
