Review: Virtual CloneDrive

It’s pretty common to download software as an ISO file (a disk image) and it seems like a waste to burn it to CD/DVD just to install it once. Instead, it makes a lot more sense to treat it as a virtual drive – if you have the right tool! I use Virtual CloneDrive. It’s free, a couple min download and cake install.

From there you just right click an ISO:

As soon as you do that, any auto run files execute. You can close that of course, and from there it just looks like a drive to Windows:

Free, easy, efficient – good stuff!

  1. I recently downloaded Virtual Clone Drive and I love it. I wish I had found it long ago. I also had several people recommend it to me when I asked on Twitter what I should use. I’m not sure why MS doesn’t include an ISO mounting utility in Windows. They’ve got it for Virtual PC and I assume, Hyper-V.
