    "Easily the best iso mount windows 7 tool. I personally use it on my computer (even though my windows version is pretty outdated) all things considered, it still works well. The user interface is pretty sleek for viewing, accessing, and operating virtual drives. "

    "Virtual Clone Drive ISO is optimal for storing multiple virtual drives. The 15 total drive capacity is really its best feature for me, especially since I tend to mount a lot of ISO files for my own personal viewing. It's also pretty simple and easy to use which is a huge plus."

    "I personally use it to access games for my PSX emulator. Being able to have a maximum of 20 ISO file storages means that I could install more games, which is the only thing that matters to me. More storages mean more games, and more games mean more playing time for me. 😎"

    "The only thing I know (and quite familiar) about this virtual drive tool is that it can support several, and I mean SEVERAL, file formats. Now I don't know if that's at all relevant to other people but I personally find it very handy."

    "It's a tool that's primarily used for creating/modifying disk images. It's pretty efficient in that regard but other than that, it's almost too basic and incapable of more advanced disk file processing. Still pretty useful, though."
