DAEMON Tools Lite is a “lite” version of the program used to emulate CD / DVD discs. It is completely free, but has some functional limitations. The article will discuss its features, installation and use. Let’s start with the first point.
Why is it “lightweight”? The answer to this question will help you figure out what kind of DAEMON Tools Lite program it is. Such a postscript to the name of the software indicates that its feature set has been reduced. But with the tasks of an ordinary user, he will still do an excellent job.
The main feature of this software is its freeware. Unlike DT Pro, its use is not limited to a two-week period, after which a subscription is required.
The functions of mounting and creating images are preserved. But the number of virtual drives has been reduced to four. True, in normal situations, more than one is not required. But more serious functions are already missing. So, for example, it will not be possible to edit the contents of an iso file. Hot keys are also not supported, but this is not so important.
