Virtual CloneDrive is a simple application that can be used in order to emulate virtual disks on a computer. Even now, CDs and DVDs might be used in order to install software apps or copy certain data to a PC, but there is an alternative that is somehow easier to work with. A virtual disk does not need a physical drive in order to run and using it, various virtual images can be mounted and their content can be accessed. And for those that are really in the need of working with virtual disks, this tool gives users the possibility of creating up to 15 virtual drives at the same time.
The interface of the application is simple and a system tray shortcut will be provided. From here, users can easily access various options of the tool in order to edit different settings for the drives. Mainly, these drives can be created with universal compatibility, but there are tweaks that can be applied in order to make a certain drive compatible with only one type of images. This way, users can group their virtual disks for more efficient management.
The program also keeps a history log file and users can easily access it in order to see events that occurred during a drive’s usage. This is a useful feature when dealing with an error but it can also be cleaned for increased privacy. The tool will auto-associate itself with standard ISO files and further links can be done from the settings menu, if the user wants to assign different file formats with this application. Discs can be ejected with ease, just as one would do with a real drive, and the virtual drive can instantly await a new image to be mounted.
