The UltraISO utility allows you to burn new information to CD/DVD and edit ISO files. You can also create bootable (and multi-boot) discs and individual images for later recording, convert from one format to another, and compress ISO to ISZ.
The main screen is divided into 4 windows. The top two show what is inside the selected disk, while the bottom two show what is inside the selected disk and are intended for searching and adding files in the directory tree. Copying and transferring is done by simply drag-n-drop a file from one area of the screen to another. When working with ready-made images, the utility will reserve additional space on the hard disk (in the temporary storage folder Temp).
The name of the program is related to the international standard ISO 9660. It combines both regular CDs and DVDs, and also provides compatibility with popular operating systems. But, of course, it's not just one standard. There is support for the UDF file system, which is more DVD-oriented. Additionally, you can connect in the RockRidge extension settings (for attribute storage), Joliet (for removing file name restrictions) and HFS (for Mac OS compatibility). In addition to ISO, various image formats are supported, including popular BIN, CUE and MDF.
The clear interface, low weight and wide functionality of the program are 3 things that make it stand out against the background of similar tools. If the price and limitations of the shareware-version were not too high, UltraISO could easily bypass the popularity of DAEMON Tools, Nero or Alcohol 120%.
