Editor's review

File system virtualization is a technology that is used in many type of tasks by different user which can be a professional developer or rarely a simple home user. The system allows an application to work with Operating System and access its files without actually making any modifications or reading these files. For instance, if you have an application which has an external dependency of system32 folder, then virtualization technique can embed these external files into a standalone package to emulate the presence of such files for the application. The feature comes built in inside latest OSes in popular Windows series. Enigma Virtual Box v.1.20 is a program which provides complete file system virtualization solution.

Enigma Virtual Box allows a developer in packing the files that the main application need to access into a standalone package portable and executable on any system, and keeps the complete functionality of the application intact, without requiring access to the actual files in the Operating System or any other on disk. The program has a single window interface in which you can just browse and select paths for input and output files which need packing and the respective files can be added from a dialog box. After this, you can check/uncheck compression settings and hit the Process button for final conversion. The program does not extract temporary files on the disk and the whole process takes place in the process memory, thereby resolving any external dependencies. You can add a multitude of types of files for packing like ActiveX and COM Objects, Dynamic Link Libraries, Media Files in various video and audio formats, and different document files.

To sum up, Enigma Virtual Box v.1.20 is a nice program for emulating complete file system in a virtual environment and provides easy functionality, leading it to score four and a half rating points on the scale of five.
