PassMark released a new version of their free mount utility OSFMount. Although it has been released as a major update, at a first look you won’t see any differences in its latest version. But I will show you that OSFMount is actually the most complete mount utility from the market. Let’s see:
Well, first of all, it can be used for programs that require high speed disk access, such as programs which work with a database, or games which use cache files. In general, OSFMount can be useful when a particular CD/DVD is used often and the speed of access is important. Another benefit is the security, considering that the disk contents are not stored on a physical hard disk (but rather in RAM). About the supports extensions, OSFMount can mount files such as: ISO, BIN, IMG, DD, 00N, NRG, SDI, AFF, AFM, VMDK an.d AFD. As I already mentioned, OSFMount is a program that can mount also RAM disks (a disk mounted into RAM), which is the unique feature among the competitors. This means that you can get the fastest access to disc images and the best overall performance of the mounted images.
You can even use OSFMount to create an image of your own. You just have to create the virtual drive, include all the necessary files, and with a simple right-click you can save the content as a virtual image in ISO, IMG, AFF, AFM or AFD formats.
