In a world where everything is starting to become digital, every type of disk media that holds your favorite music, movies, or video games are now becoming obsolete in favor of streaming and downloads which offers more or less the same quality at a much more convenient way. You don’t even need to buy a separate specific player nowadays if you want to watch your favorite movies or music.
If you want to play your old video games, there are a lot of emulators for your computer that allows you to play any game from any vintage gaming systems and you only need to download it together with the game you would like to play or you can simply download a game that is specifically made for Windows operating systems. In this day and age, it is safe to say that a disk is no longer the best way to store any kind of medium.
Now, you are probably wondering what you can do with your old disks and if there is some way to preserve their contents inside your computer. The good thing is that there are a lot of ways and one of them is turning those old disks into something called an ISO file and in that business, AnyToISO is one of the best.
AnyToISO is a software for Microsoft Windows and Macintosh operating systems which is used to create ISO image for any disk types, which includes CD, DVD or Blu-ray disks. If you ever tried downloading something and ending up with a file in an unknown file format, then you no longer have to research and download a specific software to open it since AnyToISO supports more than 20 formats and gives you a way to directly convert such files into an ISO image which you can then extract to see the contents.
With a click of a button, you can create ISO image files for your CDs, DVDs or Blu-ray disks which results in a completely perfect copy that contains the same file system as the one that appears on the disk it was made from, which you can now easily transfer in your storage devices or rewrite in a blank disk to create a copy for emergency purposes. AnyToISO also gives you the option to convert your computer folders into an ISO image to create a backup file added with a whole new layer of protection from any malicious software viruses and other sorts of computer system attacks.
AnyToISO seamlessly integrates with your Windows Explorer and Apple Finder by adding context menus to the supported file types, folders and disk drives for ease and convenience when you want to convert any of those into an ISO image. You can also run AnyToISO directly from your USB flash drives so you can use it whenever and wherever without needing to install it on every computer you come across. Lastly, it supports command line operations if you are into that as well.
AnyToISO offers a free version with limited functions as well as a paid version which is priced at 22.95 US dollars for standard license for both Windows and Mac versions and a portable license that is only available for the Windows version that is priced at 34.95 US dollars.
