Daemon Tools is a cost and time effective disc imaging software. Disk imaging is a process of creating files from CDs, DVDs and Blu-ray discs so that you can use their data later without inserting the physical storage disc in the disc drive. The software can also be used to create or mount ISO files, and other types of files.

This allows easy creation of backup copies of software or data. If you deal with protected discs, you should opt for Daemon Tools Pro which has advanced features for handling protected discs. Daemon Tools can prevent physical damage to discs and devices because you don’t need to always have the disc in the disc drive to use it. After installation, Daemon Tools gadget can be accessed easily from the desktop. The gadget offers ease-of-access to the main features with just a couple of mouse clicks. Image file formats like .iso, .flac, .nrg, .mdx, and more are supported.
To make the most of Daemon Tools’ disc copying features you can download free disc burning software like Astroburn and create bootable discs.
