As now we have several emulators running on our PCs, is it time to retire our hardware?
Of course the answer is emphatically NO! However it is becoming essential to archive the
contents of our floppy disks into an electronic format for archiving.|
The DSK format (see the FAQ page for more information on the DSK format) is becoming the
most popular format as it is usable with all the emulators. There are plans by several members to
build tools for the DSK format - including writing a DSK back to a real diskette!
Here are the current tools available. If you write any tools, please contribute them to the rest
of the group by sending them to me for these pages.
