Brief Introduction About ISO Image File
An ISO file, often called an ISO image. It contains an exact representation of the contents of a disc, allowing you to create backup copies of discs and store them digitally.

You can also "mount" the ISO, which makes it accessible as if it were a physical disc - you can install software from the disc and access its files as if it were inserted in your disc drive. The most common way to make use of an ISO file is to burn it to a CD, DVD, or BD disc.
