With WinMount, you can mount ZIP, RAR or ISO file to a new drive so that you can use those files inside directly.
WinMount - программа для создания виртуальных дисков в вашей системе из любого архива или файл-образа и может работать в качестве CD- и DVD-эмулятора.
You don't need to extract them first which implies that lots of time and disk space would be saved under many circumstances. The application also supports mounting a folder on a virtual drive.
Generally speaking, Zip or Rar files that we download from Internet need to be decompressed before we can actually use them. This decompression process goes as following.
First, you need double-click this archive, then an associated decompresses will open its file list in a window.
Now, if you double-click one of the files on the list, it seems that the file is opened automatically, but actually it, including all the other files on the list, has been decompressed to a temp folder in advance before it's opened.
This whole decompression process usually takes a lot of time, especially in an age that archives go larger and larger. For instance, decompressing an archive larger than 1G often takes you 10 minutes or more depending on your computer's capability, but now if you have got WinMount at hand, you don't need to tolerate the boring moment spent in decompressing before you can actually use all the files inside the archive.
When you've got your WinMount ready to work, you can just right-click on the archive, select "Mount to a new drive " menu item, a few seconds later, the operating system will notify you that a new device has been found and a new drive is created and ready to work.
If you open it, you can see that all the files inside the archive are ready for your use.
Don't forget to unmount drives before leaving.
Settings of installed WinMount should be preserved.
