IsoBuster License models

Following is a rough list of the main features. There are so many associated features that they cannot be listed all. But as they are all connected to a type of file-system or a type of media etc. they fall under a similar registration type.

A lot of knowledge, experience, research and effort has been put into this small but powerful application. It goes without saying that a registration, even for the free functionality, is appreciated. Consider it a contribution to the research. You never know when you will have need for the registration-restricted functionality. The cost is deliberately kept low to be able to offer a solution to everybody. High end software for a democratic price is a major priority for Smart Projects, yet it requires some fair play of everybody to be able to guarantee continuity.

Professionals will also find very specialised features, tuned for their needs, and only for a very small extra price. Business users, no matter what type business they are in, should purchase the Professional / Business type license. That's a very reasonable price for a tax deductable high end product with superb support.

If you install IsoBuster and want to make use of the free functionality only, click the "Free Functionality" button when prompted.

If you run into functionality that needs to be paid for, you will be prompted. There are no hidden features so you need not to wonder what a paid for version would show extra. You can safely install IsoBuster on your system, there are no xx-days limitations to the free use, you may install at work or wherever you like.

For a registration: Pay online and get a key sent to you automatically on payment verification.

All functionality prior to version 1.0 is free and remains free. All functionality related to the ISO9660, Joliet, Rock Ridge, El Torito and CD-i file-systems, everything related to Video CDs and all image-file making functionality is free. So, finding data, extracting (copying) data etc. is free.

Part of the functionality related to the UDF and HFS(+) file-systems is not free and needs to be paid for. This is the extraction of files that come from the UDF [drag & drop software] or HFS(+) [Macintosh] file-systems. So, all functionality is present, including scanning and finding of lost files, but if you actually want to extract (copy) a file from the UDF or HFS file-system you need a valid registration.
