Latest update still does not have the same functionality of their version 4, which is to dock to the tray. In addition, when I went to their web site, the web site appears broken when trying to go from one area to another.

I used this product on all of my home PCs for years.

Then one day it couldn't be installed requiring a manual uninstall, then a clean install. This bug never got fixed to the day I quit using this tool.

Went back to see if there was a later version and found that they had changed their business model to a Pay or suffer unavoidable malware".

This was one tool I considered going pro on because we had been using without problems, but once the problems surfaced AND they changed to the malware model, that was it for us. Will never touch this product again.

We now use WinCDEmu 3.6. Good thing about that tool is that it doesn't permanently take a drive letter, only when you want to mount images.

Is Daemon tools worth the $3.99? Not with the bugs it's not. If the product was stable on Windows 7, maybe, if you ignore the companies malware policies.

Appears they have gone to a new "BUSINESS MODEL" from the previous "free" version to a "personal use" adware-free version for #3.99 lifetime.

Didn't see a way to opt-out of the "" malware that is bundled with the latest version. Tried to install twice but you can either accept of reject the eula. If you don't accept the installation aborts.

Biggest POS in the world. Tried this over Virtual CloneDrive at the behest of some regulars on here. Takes forever to install and throws up all kinds of errors. And it costs money. What a joke.

Don't get this. You'll regret it immediately. Get Virtual CloneDrive instead.
