    "Lots of crap in this install"

    March 22, 2013  |   By rbell007

    Version: Virtual CloneDrive 5.4.5

    Pros

    Don't know.

    Cons

    When you install this, your browser ends up with a hyjack. I had to uninstall 3 or 4 other programs it installed and then still had problems reclaiming my browsers.

    Summary

    Don't download it.

    "Works as indicated"

    March 12, 2013  |   By ace2056cnet

    Version: Virtual CloneDrive 5.4.5

    Pros

    Easy to use and doesn't make unnecessary desktop icons. Auto-associates with ISO files and you just right-click and hit mount. Suddenly, you've got yourself a new drive with that ISO. Perfect!

    Cons

    None that I can find

    Summary

    Easy to use, free, and totally works like a real drive

    "*DANGER* BEWARE OF MALWARE AND ADWARE DO NOT DOWNLOAD"

    February 12, 2013  |   By therealboney

    Version: Virtual CloneDrive 5.4.5

    Pros

    Once was a great program with lots of usefulness. Runs well and is transparent.

    Cons

    Loaded with malware and adware. Installs programs without prompting and will load your new computer with crap that is a pain in the rear to get rid of.

    Summary

    Download at your own risk. This is a harmful software download and is not worth the effort of removing all the garbage it will ad to your computer. DANGER DANGER DANGER.

    "Why did this "Secure Defender" program also install?"

    February 1, 2013  |   By Kckeller

    Version: Virtual CloneDrive 5.4.5

    Pros

    As far as Virtual CloneDrive goes, it works great and saved me lots of time and DVDs. This program itself would get a 5-star rating, buuuut....

    Cons

    This other program was also installed on my computer, which triggered my antivirus program saying it had trojans inside of it. Some "Secure Defender" program. What the eff, CNET? Considering how I just built this computer and the .iso I downloaded was from Microsoft's website and I haven't visited any other sites, I'm pretty confident this crapware was downloaded and installed alongside of VCD. Very annoyed and disappointed in CNET.

    Summary

    Beware the hidden crapware installation...

    Version: Virtual CloneDrive 5.4.5

    Pros

    It's a virtual clone drive in name and in functionality; nothing more and nothing less.

    Cons

    None so far

    Summary

    Get it, yo won't regret it.

    "Works well, my only virtual drive program now"

    August 16, 2012  |   By ex_elec_tech

    Version: Virtual CloneDrive 5.4.5

    Pros

    Easy to use, and does its job excellently. Doesn't mess with my computer (like Daemon Tools did). Mounts several virtual drives at once, although I've never used more than four.

    Cons

    Sometimes if one has forgotten to dismount and disable it before shutting down the computer, upon reboot one will have to cycle it through the dismount and disable options to reset it for use. An extremely minor issue.

    I'm still using XP, so I don't know how it might or might not work for Win7.

    Summary

    Works very well on my XP, is now my only virtual drive program. I had tried Daemon tools and that messed with my computer. I had used MicroSoft Virtual CD and that was okay but only could mount one drive at a time.

    "Is this software even running? (That's a joke!)"

    July 3, 2012  |   By irdaneel

    Version: Virtual CloneDrive 5.4.5

    Pros

    Absolutely seamless installation and operation. It mounts my .iso files flawlessly.

    Cons

    I just can't think of a thing to say here.

    Summary

    This does exactly what I want. Simple, clear, and effective.
