Does anyone know why Sardu duplicates ISOs? and is it necessary? When you download an ISO, Sardu puts it into a folder called ISO. And if you add a file manually, you put the ISO into the same folder. Logical enough... but then Sardu makes a copy of the ISO file in a subfolder called ISOLinux, which means your Sardu directory is roughly twice as big as you thought it would be. So if you download, say, the BitDefender ISO at about 370 MB, you end up with 740 megabytes of BitDefender on your disk. Any one know why?

NEW Versions with more Options aviable ...

Many users requested that I add the ability to include stand-alone software. Inside the ISO folder I have included an `extra` folder where additional files can be put. You can enable this folder if it does not exist by pressing File -- Enable Extra.
User can load ISO not directly supported: Menu --> Add Extra ISO (Test) or Menu --> Add Extra ISO from memory (Test).
User can load own customized folder and/or menu iso/syslinux and GRUB4Dos.
This option is for advanced users, and I don't provide customer support related to its use.

The page was not found.... Betterinstaller plus has a REALLY bad reputation as adware... I wanted this program but I am not taking it nor can I get it from this source

you might be able to get rid of Better Installer by using Sandboxie or so i've heard.
