WinMount

What is WinMount?

WinMount is a compression and decompression tool developed for computers that run on Windows platform. What used to be generally available only for Linux and Unix operating systems, is now also widely available for Windows-run computers, i.e. saving compressed archives in virtual drives.

The software, developed by Winmount International, Inc., provides a disk space-saving application where users can mount their compressed archives, as well as CD/DVD and HDD images, onto virtual drives. It supports compressed files in the following formats: .rar, .zip and .mou. WIM files can also be mounted onto a virtual disk drive or virtual folder.

With the mounting application, files need no longer be decompressed before they can be accessed. When these are mounted onto the virtual drives, the user can directly access the files, which makes for a great disk space-saving utility.

Moreover, WinMount enables the user to create a blank RAM disk space for temporary files; which is also aimed at saving hard disk space. All data on the new RAM disk however, will be lost once the computer reboots. The purpose for the application is to save on hard disk space while the computer is in use. There is a trial version of the software that can be downloaded directly from the manufacturer’s website.
