When running on Windows 2000, Windows XP or Windows 2003 Server, WinImage can collaborate with the FileDisk driver to mount disk images. FileDisk is a virtual disk driver for Windows 2000/XP/2003 Server that uses one or more uncompressed images files to emulate physical disks. FileDisk can mount uncompressed FAT images (.IMA images of floppy, removable disk or hard disk partition) or ISO CD-ROM/DVD images.
FileDisk is a free software build by Bo BrantÚn, who has nicely agreed to the distribution and integration of the FileDisk driver with WinImage. Thanks Bo!
To manually install FileDisk drivers, you need:
- Copy the driver (filedisk.sys) to %systemroot%\system32\drivers\.
- Optionally edit filedisk.reg for automatic/manually start and number of devices.
- Import filedisk.reg to the Registry.

These sites also provide a link to a console application that enables you to use FileDisk without WinImage.
