Virtual Folder creates virtual disks on your computer to give you quick access to frequently used files and folders without having to move them. It doesn't include complicated options or configuration settings, making it accessible to all types of users.

Installing this software utility is a fast job which shouldn't give you any trouble. It gets integrated into the Windows Explorer shell extension for seamlessly creating virtual folders from selected directories.

Once launched, it asks you to create a virtual disk by selecting a preferred drive letter that's not already in use. However, you should keep in mind that system reboot is necessary to complete the app's finalization as well as to mount the new disk drive. This action is not automatically executed by the app, so you have plenty of time to wrap up any unsaved work.

The new virtual folder becomes accessible in the file manager, just like visiting any local or network drive. From this point on, you can involve it in common file operations, or launch Virtual Folder's configuration panel.

It has a neatly organized layout and enables you to include any folders in the virtual container, as well as to specify their display names for easy identification. Even network drives can be mapped. Apart from the fact that you can remove any folder from the virtual environment, there are no other notable options available.

We haven't come across any stability issues in our tests, thanks to the fact that the software utility didn't hang, crash or show any error dialogs. It didn't put a strain on the computer's performance, running on low CPU and memory.

Although it doesn't come bundled with richer options and customization preferences, Virtual Folder offers a simple method for mapping virtual folders, and it can be handled by anyone.
