DAEMON Tools Pro helps you mount virtual disks with no problem through its streamlined interface and clear sets of controls. With all features easily accessible, this program is powerful enough to satisfy advanced users while intuitive enough for beginners to figure out quickly.
Conversions: Not only does this program mount disk images for you, it also converts disks to disk images, so you don't have to find another program to perform that function. Having these features integrated into the same app makes the process smooth from beginning to end, and it also makes it more accessible for less-experienced users.
Good help: Whether you prefer video tutorials or step-by-step instructions, you'll be happy with the Help feature this app contains. Each topic has both video and written instructions with screenshots, so you'll have no trouble taking advantage of all this program has to offer.
Not free: This program is free to try for 20 days. But if you want to continue to use it once your trial is up, you'll have to purchase a license for $44.99. While it's a reasonable price for what it offers, the cost will put off some users.
This is a powerful program with a lot of nice features, and the clear interface makes it accessible to users of all experience levels. The 20-day trial is helpful in letting you determine whether purchasing the full version is worth it to you, especially since it is on the pricey side.
