DAEMON Tools is a virtual disc emulation program for Windows. With it, you can create virtual drives, mount and unmount ISOs, as well as generate image files. The software is aimed at both advanced and beginner PC users.
The graphical user interface is quite minimalistic, but at the same time has a modern design. The layout consists of a left side menu, the main window display and a drive menu at the bottom. Thanks to its tray agent, the application also enables you to quickly mount any supported image type directly from the lower part of your computer screen.

Apart from imaging tools, it also allows you to burn discs, boot USBs, and even initiate iSCSI protocols. The only downside of these features is that you have to acquire the full edition in order to have them installed. If you would like to access these functions straightaway, you can use other special utilities like Nero.
