Functionality and capabilities:
- Image creation. All data stored on the storage device can be saved on the PC as an image. This allows you to install and run game files without the need for the corresponding disks.
- Conversion. The most popular disk image format is iso. As mentioned above, the product can also work with other formats, allowing you to convert one format to another almost instantly.
- Recording. Do you already have a downloaded image from the internet or have you created it yourself? Then you can easily write this image to your storage device, all you need is a CD RW or DVD RW drive and the Lite version of Daemon Tools!
- Recording information to a disk. An optical disk drive can also act as a USB flash drive, on which you can write any type of file data, such as videos or photos.
- Recording Audio CD. This feature is already outdated, but it is still available to many users who use Audio CDs for listening to music.
- Secure data erasure. You can erase all data for a fresh recording. Surely, this only affects writable disks.
- Copying. With the Lite version of the product, you can easily and quickly create an exact copy of a storage device without any hassle.
- Creating virtual HDD. Allows you to create a peripheral storage device from your computer's RAM. In addition, this feature allows you to create a virtual HDD, which is necessary for copying Windows or installing multiple operating systems simultaneously.
- Creating a bootable flash drive. Need to install a new Windows on your computer? Then just get a bootable medium! If you don't have a distribution disk, you can easily write the OS image to any flash drive.
- Creating a password for a flash drive. This feature allows you to protect any information on a USB device with a password, which you can create directly in the program.
- Mounting. This is one of the most sought-after features. It allows you to run disk images on your PC without having a physical drive. A virtual drive is created in the system, which allows you to install games or play movies from the image.
Despite its relatively small size, the product stands out for having the necessary means to bypass copy protection. This allows for emulation of both regular disks and disks protected by special technologies like SafeDisc, StarForce, and others.
Daemon Tools Lite is a good, carefully designed software interface for working with images and physical storage devices. Many features are only available in the paid version. However, for mounting, running, creating, and storing information, the regular Lite version of the product is sufficient.
