What is an ISO file?
The file type, ISO, was taken from the name of the file system used by optical media standard 9660. The idea behind the ISO image is to make a complete copy of everything stored on a physical optical disc like a compact disc and contains the file system. The ISO image is sector-by-sector copy of the disc, with no compression is used. Most operating systems allow you to mount an ISO image as a virtual disc. This will make the image appear and function as a real optical disc. ISO images are used to archive an exact digital copy of a disc. Later, that image can be burn to a new disc, which is exact copy of the original.
While many people use ISO images to create backups of their optical discs or files, ISO images these days are a primary method to distribute large programs and operating systems. ISO images contain many files and folders in one easily downloadable file. This format gives people many options to mount that image, extract files, or burn an optical disc.
