OSFMount is a collection of virtual drive tools that allows mounting local disk image files as a drive letter, RAM disks, and mounting CD or DVD images (for simplicity or speed). Supported image types include IMG, DD, ISO, BIN, NRG, SDI, AFF, AFM, AFD, VMDK (used by VMware), VHD (Virtual PC), and more.
The program is ideal for machines without a CD/DVD drive and, as most images are bit-for-bit copies of disk partitions, many programs will treat them as the real thing, enabling programs that require a program disc. For disk images, the program can give access to these files without booting or other required visualization software. RAM disks have a variety of uses including high speed caches, programs with frequent/intense disk reads/writes, and some database applications.
Command line tools are also included.
Note: The developer warns: "it is recommended that 64-bit Windows is used when large disk image files are to be mounted."
