I don't give the files out to anyone do its completely fine.

For what it's worth, I think what you're doing is completely fine. You've paid for the game, and you want to play the game. You're not distributing anything at all to anyone else. If anything, the people supplying you the NO-CD patch are the ones at risk of doing things wrong.

Besides, with Windows 10 removing support for lots of older DRM software, NO-CD patches have become more and more important for legitimate gamers who own original CDs.

Thank you, I just got the game in the mail and it's working perfectly.

I made sure to back it all up on my google drive and one drive.
End of an era

I always use UltraISO to make a virtual CD drive to play.

you can pick up a good portable hard drive to plug into your computer on Ebay for $45 or more. Then you can use your Tomb raider CD game disk and any other game disks
