DAA files were once suggested as an alternative to ISO files that could be broken into volumes of arbitrary size, password-protected and compressed for ease of publishing online and sharing. The inventor of the format, PowerISO, wanted the format to replace the ISO format for video disk images distributed over P2P networks and torrents. PowerISO, however, is not free and its evaluation version only opens files of up to 300 MB in size, whereas most *.daa files downloaded from the web will be larger. If you have a *.daa file you want to open, you have two options: purchase PowerISO, the native software for working with DAA files, or use a third-party tool supporting the format.
Since the prices of archiving tools supporting the format (e.g WinArchiver 2.6) and PowerISO are the same, we can only advise you to think the way you’ll use them. If all you need is good *.daa support, go for PowerISO. If you also wouldn’t mind having a powerful archiving tool featuring *.daa support, the choice is clear as well. If you choose PowerISO, you will also find out that it’s a versatile image file processing solution supporting a number of image formats, image file mounting and nearly every conceivable operation on image files. The program tightly integrated with the operating system and even allows you to create bootable USB drives.
Even though the very existence of *.daa files has questionable value for most users downloading video content from the web, the format lives and requires tools that support it. If you’ve come across such a file for the first time, go for PowerISO evaluation version to get a taste of it and purchase a license if you feel you’ll be using it a lot.
