Description[edit]

OSFMount allows you to mount local disk image files (bit-for-bit copies of an entire disk or disk partition) in Windows as a physical disk or a logical drive letter. OSFMount is a 64-bit Windows utility. An older version (OSFMount V2.0.1001) is available for 32-bit as well. While images are mounted as read-only per default, the tool also supports opening images in a "write cache" mode, where changes are written into a delta file.


The tool supports the following Windows image file formats:

Image Format Read Write Mount as RAM drive Convert to Image file Extend Format
Raw Image (.IMG, .DD) yes yes yes yes yes yes
Raw CD Image (.ISO, .BIN) yes no yes yes no no
Split Raw Image (.00n) yes yes yes no no yes
Nero Burning ROM Image (.NRG) yes yes yes no yes yes
System Deployment Image (.SDI) yes yes yes no yes yes
Advanced Forensics Format Images* (AFF) ´ yes yes yes yes no yes
Advanced Forensics Format Images w/ meta data* (AFM) yes yes yes yes no yes
