Recent versions of Windows operating system have options to handle ISO files. While Windows 7 comes with an option to burn ISO files, Windows 10 and Windows 8 support ISO mounting as well as ISO burning out of the box. But if you’re in need of advanced ISO handling features you have no option but to use third party tools.
ISO Workshop for Windows 10
While there are tens of free tools available to create, burn, and mount ISO files, ISO Workshop is probably the only tool which not only features an easy-to-use interface but also decent set of features. With ISO Workshop, one can create ISO image out of local files and folders, burn ISO files to CD/DVD/Blu-ray discs, extract files from ISO images, and convert various disc image formats to ISO.
With Convert to ISO feature, one can easily convert BIN, NRG, CDI, MDF, IMG, GI, PDI, DMG, B5I, and B6I image files to ISO. The extract tool lets you extract files from above mentioned image file formats. One can also use ISO Workshop as a backup tool. Use the Backup feature to copy a disc to ISO or BIN image file.
Please note that the the current version (v7.2) of ISO Workshop setup offers you install AVG Security Toolbar during the installation. To avoid installing the toolbar, simply uncheck “Install AVG Security Toolbar and improve my internet protection” option that you see during the product installation.
Overall, ISO Workshop is a fantastic tool to handle your ISO files. An option to mount ISO files right-from the context menu would have made this tool best in class. And it would also be useful if there was an option to add create, extract, burn, and convert to the context menu. Nevertheless, it’s a handy tool.
