Manage ISO and disk image files

PeaZip provides read only support (view, browse content, extract from) for many disk image standards, like ISO, UDF, MDF, Apple's DMG packages (common virtual disk images for software deployment on macOS / Mac OSX operating systems), IMA/IMG/IMZ images, Microsoft's VHD for Virtual PC, QCOW2 (QUEMU virtual disk), VMDK VMWare Virtual Machine Disk, VDI Oracle VirtualBox Virtual Drive Image.
This allows to unpack / disassemble such disk images, in order to, in example, inspect package's content before mounting or installing it, or to explore the container to search for specific content - which can then be selectively disassembled from the image.

The software also offers full read / write support for Microsoft WIM image files.

Please note editing and burning to physical disk such image files formats is out of the scope of PeaZip utility, which acts only as a file viewer in this context, you will need an appropriate software (i.e. an ISO disk image authoring) tool to create or update read-supported image formats.

As alternative utilities, 7-Zip (on MS Windows systems) and p7zip (on Linux/BSD), both free and Open Source tools, are recommended for working with those disk image file formats with same limitations (work as reader/viewer only) mentioned for PeaZip.

Following how-to instructions apply to ISO format as well as to all other read-supported image formats like Apple DMG, IMA, IMG, IMZ, MDF, Microsoft VHD, Oracle VDI, Qemu QCOW2, UDF, VMWare VMDK...

Create ISO image file

Update existing ISO archive

PeaZip provides read only support (extractor / opener) to ISO, Apple macOS / OSX DMG, UDF, VMWare VMDK and other image files mentioned on this page: creation, editing and burning to physical support is not supported for those file types.

To handle creation and modification of those image types it is recommended to use a proper authoring tool following each format's specifications.

How to convert ISO image files

File converter procedure using Convert button extracts any read supported format (including iso, udf, dmg, vmdk, vdi, img...) and then re-pack it into any write-supported format (7z, arc, pea, tar, wim, zip...), optionally keeping or discarding original archives.

Vice versa is not supported, as PeaZip acts only as a reader / viewer and can't write to those formats.

This utility makes possible to convert each individual input archives in the new format, or consolidating all input items into a single output archive of the selected new format.

Manage encrypted image files

In case the image file is password protected, you can add a password clicking on locker icon on PeaZip status bar when viewing the archive in the file explorer, or the same icon in the extraction screen.

Open and extract image files (ISO, DMG, UDF, VMDK...)

Use one of the procedures described below to open (browse and search inside the archive) and/or extract content from a disk image / virtual machine disk file, using PeaZip as opener / extractor application
  • From the system

    • To view disk image's content, open it in PeaZip with double click (if file extension is associated with the application), or using system context menu "Open as archive" entry, that will attempt to read any user provided file type regardless file type associations - this option is also available in PeaZip's context menu

    • Use context menu entry "Extract..." for full extraction screen GUI where to set output path and other options

    • Select one or more archives and use context menu entry Extract here or Extract here (to new folder) for quick extraction with no further confirmation

  • Within PeaZip

    • Extract button shows full featured archive extraction screen providing access to all options (password, set output path, open output path after extraction, keep or delete original archives, etc) and can send to extraction selected items only

    • Extract all to... button activate a simplified dialog only asking for output path

    • While browsing the iso image with PeaZip's viewer, simply drag & drop desired objects from the application to the system (easiest way)

    • Doubleclick on a file inside the disk image to open it in preview mode, i.e. to inspect its content before considering the need for real extraction
