DAEMON Tools Pro is an optical disc emulator and authoring application developed by DT Soft Ltd. It comes in two editions – DAEMON Tools Pro Advanced and DAEMON Tools Pro Standard. The program can work with disk images. It features an Image Catalog used for managing optical disk (CDs, DVDs, or Blu-ray) images. It also has an Image Editor used for creating, editing, and extracting disk images. Disk image information can be viewed using the program as well. It also has an Image Converter tool for converting disk images to other supported formats.

The application can be used to back up Blu-ray, CD, or DVD. Aside from creating disk images, it can also incorporate a password on the created images. Image compression and image splitting is possible as well. As an emulator device, the program offers extra parameters not included in the Lite version. It also offers an automount feature allowing users to mount an image file automatically right after reboot. DAEMON Tools Pro can be used as a disk burner as well. It can burn different types of disk images to CDs, DVDs and Blu-ray disks. It even has a PickUp Data feature, which can be used to burn multisession disks. Disk virtualization is possible with this program, too. It can emulate DT, IDE or SCSI devices. Users may also attach the virtual device to physical SATA/IDE devices. Disk images can be mounted to folders located on the local hard drive.
