Publisher description for Disk Image Creation Utilities

Disk Image Creation Utilities program icon

Utilities to create blank disk image files. The main use for this is to create blank Macintosh hard disk images for use with SoftMac 2000 and other Macintosh emulators, or to create blank Atari ST hard disk images for use by Gemulator. To install, UnZip the contents of MAKEDSK.ZIP. There are two Similar utilities provided - MAKEDSK.EXE and MakeImg.EXE. MAKEDSK.EXE is used to create a large zero-filled file on your hard disk. This can then be mounted by SoftMac 2000 and formatted using the Mac OS disk formatting utility as a large Macintosh hard disk Partition. MAKEIMG.EXE is used to create pre-formatted Macintosh hard disk and floppy disk images. The images are formatted in standard HFS format and contain a blank root directory. The files can then be mounted as .HFX files by SoftMac 2000 and other Macintosh emulators. From a command line prompt type MAKEIMG or MAKEDSK followed by the name of the image file to create and the size in kilobytes. For example, to create a blank formatted Macintosh floppy disk image, type: MAKEIMG UNTITLED.IMG 1440 You can then use the Gemulator Explorer utility to write this image to a real floppy disk, thus being able to format a Macintosh floppy disk on your PC! Another example, to create a 500 megabyte Macintosh hard disk image for use with SoftMac 2000, (which you can mount and format with the Mac OS) type: MAKEDSK BIGDISK.DSK 500000
