DAEMON Tools is an invaluable piece of software that virtually replicates a CD-ROM drive for downloaded programs that require a physical installation. This clever interface creates a fake disc location that can be utilized by other applications. The whole process works through an automatic image mounting protocol that allows unauthorized products to cultivate the appearance of an official release. This mechanism effectively tricks your computer into thinking a certified CD is uploading the information that is actually being provided by your hard drive. Because it grants separate spaces for the artificial disc, there is no chance of confusion with your physical CD-ROM unit.
