Can I get information off a USB thumb drive without the physical device?

Q: How a physical Device (usb dongle) can be copied and mounted to the system without the need of the physical device ? (sort of like daemon tools)

    Wish – It sounds like what you’re trying to do is be able to access the files on the USB dongle remotely? Or is the dongle required for an application that this dongle prevents pirated use of the software?

    If it is for accessing files remotely, I’d say you could use something as simple as an FTP server and FTP Client to access the files. There are also multiple applications out there that will allow you to share files or access files remotely that are on your local computer. I can be of better help if you can provide me with additional details of what it is that you’re trying to resolve.


    If you’re trying to get around using a USB dongle to use a software program (and this pirate it), you’re out of luck.

    If you’re a student, talk to the software company, many offer steep discounts or free temporary licenses for training purposes.


    Well I have a physical dongle myself thats cool and all, but In case I want my licenses on my laptop I have to disconect the dongle and insert into laptop etc, I want to make mountable virtual copy in my laptop so i don’t have to take off my dongle everytime from my main computer, thats it
