What is an ISO file and what is it for?
When trying to install a new operating system on your computer, you may have seen the term “ISO file” floating around. But what exactly is an ISO file? And what is it for?
An ISO file is a type of image file that contains an exact representation of a disc. This means that an ISO file can be used to store the contents of anything from a small USB drive to a DVD, or even a large hard drive.
ISO files are sometimes called “disk images” because they store a copy of everything on a disk: all the files and folders, the boot information, and so on. In fact, ISO files can even be used to store the content of multiple discs in a single file.
An ISO file can be burned directly to a blank disc to create exact DVD or CD copies, but it is also possible to work with ISO files virtually, without burning them to disc. For example, it is possible to mount an ISO file to access its content without having to burn it first. It is also possible to use an ISO file as a “backup” for a virtual machine running on software such as VMware or VirtualBox.
The first use of ISOs was to store images of software installation disks to create backup copies in case the original was lost or damaged. Today they are used to distribute software and media over the Internet as they have all the data in one package that can be quickly downloaded.
You can also use them to create your own installation discs. They are perfect for this because they contain all the necessary metadata to make them bootable, so you don’t have to worry about it.
