ImDisk Toolkit: Ramdisk for Windows and Mounting of Image Files

Many good applications are available to mount image files of hard drive, CD-ROM, or floppy, but very few supports creating one or several ramdisks with various parameters. ImDisk Toolkit is an all-in-one package that features mounting image files to a virtual drive in physical memory and virtual memory. It allows you to mount an ISO image file as removable media as well as read-only.

ImDisk Toolkit

The ImDisk Toolkit uses the standard ImDisk Virtual Disk Driver and adds a more friendly user interface and a few other tweaks and improvements. That means it much easier to use. Using this software, you can mount and create Ramdisks with ease.

This free tool allows you to mount an image file on any available drive letter. Once you have installed the ImDisk Toolkit on your Windows PC, right-click on an ISO image file that you would like to mount in a virtual drive and then select the “Mount as ImDisk Virtual Disk” option from the context menu.

A new window opens, select the parameters, and click on the OK button to mount the image file on a virtual drive.

ImDisk Toolkit allows you to select the drive letter of your choice and has the ability to mount the image file on startup. Apart from the ISO images, you are allowed to mount the following file formats virtually:-

  1. vhd, vdi, and vmdk (static, dynamic, and vmdk multipart)
  2. iso, nrg, and bin
  3. raw formats (img, ima, raw, VFD, etc.)
  4. dmg
  5. SDI

Based on the ImDisk Virtual Disk Driver, the ImDisk Toolkit is a truly great application. It is a nice toolkit for beginners and advanced users who want to use it whenever they need a virtual disk.
