DAEMON Tools Ultra Description
DAEMON Tools Ultra is a comprehensive software application designed to help you create virtual drives and mount images. However, it comes packed with extra handy tools as well, such as an image burner and converter.
The setup procedure does not take a long time to finish. However, since it’s ad-supported, the program offers to install some third-party components that it doesn’t actually need to work properly. These offers can be declined to make a clean installation, though.
Simple or advanced image mounting
The main application window is elegant and has a neatly organized structure, inviting you to indicate images by dropping them in the designated area.
They can be directly mounted with one click, or you can enter advanced mode to configure additional settings. Therefore, it is possible to pick a preferred drive letter, select the emulation mode between standard, SCSI and IDE, choose the DVD region, as well as add a mount point.
Burn images to discs and resort to extra utilities
Images can be burned to disc as soon as you pick the device and writing speed. Plus, you can ask DAEMON Tools Ultra to disable multi-session mode by finalizing the disc, and to verify the integrity of the data on task completion.
Furthermore, you can create a RAM or VHD disk, TrueCrypt image, compile an MDX, MDS, MDF or standard ISO image from a disc, build a writable virtual device, convert images to other formats, edit their properties, as well as write a bootable image to USB or protected data to a disc or flash drive. Password protection and data compression are supported for image conversion. DAEMON Tools Ultra also lets you burn data or audio discs, and clone discs.
As far as app configuration is concerned, you can integrate a DAEMON Tools Ultra icon in the system tray area for quick access, set the images to automatically mount, disable automatic checkups for software updates, switch to a different UI language and color scheme, customize file associations, disable message confirmations for various events, as well as apply proxy settings for connecting to the Internet.
Evaluation and conclusion
We have not come across any stability issues in our tests, thanks to the fact that DAEMON Tools Ultra did not hang, crash or pop up error messages. Its impact on CPU and memory is minimal, so it doesn’t hamper system resources. Given its wide range of tools, you can definitely test this application for yourself. However, the price of the full page seems too expensive.
