A lot of people first came across an ISO file while trying to find a Windows OS upgrade package from Microsoft. Thanks to the ISO format’s splendid performance of data storage, you may find that Microsoft offers you an ISO file instead of a file package.

Also, if you’re a big movie fan, you may likely have access to some video ISO files from some DVD movie downloading sites or you’re pretty good at ripping a DVD as an ISO file.

1. What is ISO

Also knows as an optical disc image, the ISO format is a disk image that contains everything that is written into a DVD or Blu-ray disc.

Inside a commercial DVD or Blu-ray disc, we can find several folders that store the content of this disc. While trying to copy the disc content to a computer, we may try to combine all the folders into one file – an ISO image that is more convenient for transfer, backup, and storage.

The ISO format will not compress the source files and folders at all, but to warp them into one file. And due to its framework, we cannot open, view, and play an ISO file with some everyday methods. We need help from some professional ISO tools.
