What is a Disk Image file

PeaZip support read-only mounting various disk imaging file formats for browsing and extraction, as:
  • DMGfree dmg utility Apple Disk Image format, commonly used for software and data package distribution on Mac OS X, storing content in UDIF data format
  • ISOfree iso utility uncompressed sector-based imaging format storing binary digital copy, sector-by-sector, of an optical disk support, file system agnostic (may contain in example an ISO 9660 file system, as well as other file systems), commonly used to save as single archive file a data CD, DVD, or Blu-Ray disk.
  • UDFfree dmg utility Universal File Format is an open standard (ISO 13346, created by Optical Storage Technology Association) for data storage, developed for overcoming limitations of older ISO 9660 standard
PeaZip also supports (read-only) other disk imaging types, as IMA, IMG, IMZ, VHD, and MDF (Alcohol 120 image file), and fully supports (read and write) WIMMicrosoft WMI image file format Microsoft Windows Imaging File Format, file-based disk image format.

Mount ISO file

free iso files utility

To open ISO file (read-only mount the disk image) or DMG, UDF, WIM or other imaging format, double click on the file if its extension is associated to PeaZip, or (assuming Microsoft Windows operating system) right-click on the file and use "Open as archive" entry in system's context menu, or standard system's "Open with" dialog for associating .iso / .dmg / .udf format to be handled through PeaZip once or permanently.
Content of the disk image can be browsed and searched (magnifier icon at the right of the address bar), and archived files can be extracted or previewed without extraction (extract as temporary file and opened with associated application).
Custom programs or scripts can be used for previewing (or extract + open concatenation) other than standard system's associations, set from main menu > Options > Organize applications (Alt+9 hotkey), in example in that way can be configured anti-virus for scanning archived content.
Please note the file cannot be updated adding / replacing / deleting data in the disk's file system.
Also, please note burning images to physical disk is out of the scope of the program.

Extract ISO files

How to extract content from ISO file, or DMG, UDF, WIM or other disk image:

    • context menu "Extract here" / "Extract here (to new folder)" immediately starts unarchiving of the content
    • context menu "Extract..." let the user input extraction process options (output folder, replace or skip existing files, keep or delete original packages, etc)
  • From PeaZip's file manager GUI, for complete or selective extraction:
    • "Extract" button or "Extract all / selected / displayed" entries in application's context menu, displays full featured extraction dialog
    • "Extract all here" displays simple, minimal extraction dialog (a simple directory picker), for novice users or when more features are not needed
    • select and drag desired files / folders from the application and drop them to the system for direct extraction
It is generally not needed a password to open and extract ISO, DMG, and UDF images, anyway click the padlock icon mount iso disk in status bar (in file/archive viewer) or below output address (in extraction screen) to enter a password, or click Tools > Enter password / keyfile in main menu (F9 shortcut).
