Create or mount ISO files in seconds with this handy tool

ImDisk is a virtual disk driver with several applications. It can create RAM disks, for instance; mount existing disk images as virtual drives; or create new images from scratch in just a few clicks.

Do you have a CD or DVD image, for instance - perhaps an ISO or NRG file? Just right-click the file, select "Mount as ImDisk virtual Disk", and the ImDisk dialog will appear. If you know what you're doing then there are a lot of configuration options here (you can set the drive letter, the virtual disk size, the image file offset, device type, whether the drive should be removable, and more). But if you're not too technical, no problem, the default settings are fine, just click OK and within a few seconds the image will appear as a browsable virtual drive in Explorer.

Maybe you'd like to create an image of an existing optical disc? That's equally straightforward. Right-click the disk, select "Save disk contents as image file", and the program will create an ISO image for you.

ImDisk isn't restricted to working with CDs or DVDs, though. It can also create and load images of removable drives. And it may be able to work with hard drives, too, although this gets more complicated (the program can't mount full drives, only partitions.)

Once you've finished with a virtual drive then you can usually remove it by selecting "UnMount ImDisk Virtual Disk" from the right-click menu in Explorer. But if you need more power then a Control Panel applet acts as a central point from where you can create, configure and remove your drives and images.

ImDisk's extensive set of command line options mean you can any of this (and a whole lot more) from your own scripts or batch files.

And the author's extreme attention to compatibility issues means you can install the program on any edition of Windows from NT 4.0 (no, really) to Windows 8, on both 32 and 64-bit systems.



ImDisk is an excellent tool, packed with advanced functionality, yet also straightforward enough that even relative PC novices can use it.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.11

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.11 brings:

• Links that you share or receive will now include a rich preview. When sending a link, you have the option to not include a rich preview.
• Additional 3D Touch features: You can now quickly Peek and Pop chats.
• Redesigned Settings tab. 
• You can now view all your starred messages across all your chats in Settings — Starred Messages.
