A disk image utility that can handle ISO files - create, open, view and extract them.
How Undisker Can Help You
Extracting files from ISO Images
ISO images are widely used for storing and transferring contents of entire CDs through the Internet. Often you may need to extract a file from an ISO image, but the problem is that you have to burn the complete image to a CD just to extract a single file.
Undisker can open ISO images as if they were archives and extract any files from them, so you no longer have to waste a CD or time. Simply open the ISO image, select the desired files and drag them to the desktop or to Windows Explorer.
Extracting is also useful when you need to burn an image file that is incompatible with your CD-recorder program. Simply open that image, extract all of its files, and drop them into your favorite CD-recording program.
Creating ISO Images of CDs
Undisker can create ISO images of CDs. ISO files are commonly used to store and transfer contents of entire CDs. Most CD recording programs can burn ISO images to recordable CDs. Some of these programs even use ISO as their native disk image format.
Creating Bootable CDs
You can make your own bootable CDs using disk images created by Undisker. Most CD-recording programs have a Boot From Image option, which allows you to specify a boot image. To create a bootable CD, you need to make an image of a bootable disk, save it in IMG format, and select it as a boot image in your CD-recorder program. Note that the boot image is not limited to 1.4 MB because you can create a boot image from any drive, not only a floppy drive.
Recovering Data from Damaged Disks
Undisker can capture disk images of damaged disks and drives. This gives you a chance to recover your files after a disk crash. Even if the image is corrupted, Undisker displays the files and folders that were unaffected or partially affected by the crash, and allows you to extract those files to your hard disk. Undisker does its best to recover every damaged file in the image.
Making Backup Copies of Your Disks
You can use disk image files to backup your entire disks, including boot sectors, FAT tables, files, folders, attributes and any other system-specific data. You can do that by creating an image of the original disk and saving it to a disk image file. When you need to restore the original disk, simply open that image file in Undisker and use the Write To command to restore the target disk.
Copying Non-Standard Floppy Diskettes
Undisker can be used for copying non-standard floppy diskettes and floppies created in operating systems other than Windows. Basically, the copying is performed by making an image of the original floppy and writing it to the target empty diskette. Just insert the original diskette in the drive, make the image file, replace the diskette with an empty one, and write the image data to the empty diskette.
