How to Create a Virtual Drive

A virtual drive is a form of drive on your PC that maps to a virtual folder. This is a special folder that acts as if it's a separate drive in itself. With a virtual drive, users can create virtual CD-ROM and DVD-ROM drives. CDs and DVDs can be mounted as a disk image, which is usually in ISO, CUE, or BIN format. . A key advantage of a virtual drive is that it usually saves time. A virtual CD drive, for example, can be read much faster than a physical CD drive because it exists on the hard drive.
