Many Windows®-based disk image mounting solutions mount the contents of disk images as shares or partitions, rather than “complete” (a/k/a “physical” or “real”) disks, which limits their usefulness to digital forensics practitioners. Arsenal Image Mounter mounts the contents of disk images as complete disks in Windows. Arsenal Image Mounter includes a virtual SCSI adapter (via a unique Storport miniport driver) which allows users to benefit from disk-specific features in Windows like integration with Disk Manager, access to Volume Shadow Copies, and more. As far as Windows is concerned, the contents of disk images mounted by Arsenal Image Mounter are “real” SCSI disks. If Arsenal Image Mounter is run without a license, it will run in "Free Mode" and provide core functionality.
If Arsenal Image Mounter is licensed, it will run in "Professional Mode” with full functionality enabled. Arsenal Image Mounter source code and APIs are available to developers for royalty-free use in open source projects. Commercial projects (and other projects not licensed under an AGPL v3 compatible license) that would like to use Arsenal Image Mounter source code and/or APIs must contact Arsenal to obtain alternative licensing.
