Using ISOTool

ShadowProtect 5 includes an updated ISOTool. The new version can:

  • Burn an ISO image to a disc (including CD, DVD, and Blu-ray),
  • Mount and dismount ISO images
  • Author a CD ISO. The authoring function can also modify an existing ISO image and save those changes to a new ISO file.

To use the ISOTool:

Note: Windows 2000 does not support ISOTool.

Run ISOTool either from:

Start/All Programs/StorageCraft/ISOTool.exe

or from

C:\Program Files (x86)\StorageCraft\ShadowProtect\ISOTool.exe.

Note: Either way, right-click on ISOTool.exe and select Run as Administrator.

The tool offers five tabs to:

  • Burn a Disc
  • Rip a Disc
  • Mount ISO
  • Dismount ISO
  • Author ISO

These tabs provide instruction to perform these functions. The authoring tab has additional steps.

Author an ISO

Note: This option only creates non-bootable data disks.

To author a new ISO:

  1. Double-click on the default name "My ISO" to enter another name.
  2. Use the Disc Type dropdown box at the lower-right to specify what size image you want. The range is from 700MB to 128GB on a dual-layer Blu-ray disc.
  3. Click Add Files to browse and select one or more files.
  4. Click Add Directory to select a folder to include on the ISO.
    Note: ISOTool only accepts one folder at a time, even though you can select multiple folders at once.
  5. To remove an unwanted folder or file, highlight one and click Remove.
  6. Type in a name for the ISO.
  7. Click Browse to select a destination for the new ISO.
  8. Optional: check Use Burner to send the resulting ISO to a blank disc in the recorder.
  9. Click Author ISO.

The ISOTool creates the new ISO image.
