Editors' review

The age of the floppy is almost over, but the 3 1/2-inch disc is still hanging in there. If you need to back up floppies or distribute them over the Net, FlopImager could be the answer. This no-nonsense utility creates byte-by-byte images of floppy discs and saves them in the DSK format or as executables you can restore on any computer, even where FlopImager is not installed. Professional users can add a picture and a license agreement to self-extracting EXEs. FlopImager is especially useful with boot disks, which can't be duplicated simply by copying files. It's a niche product for sure, but it works perfectly well.

    "Great for making exact copies of floppies"

    December 04, 2007   |   By FlappingCrane

    Version: Floppy Image 2.4

    Pros

    Very easy to use. Lots of options for creating an image file, even self-extracting EXE files, with space for putting License Agreement text and set up instructions. You can even load a bitmap to put your logo or any picture on the start screens. If all you want to is create images of your floppy disks that can be easily distributed, this program works great.

    Cons

    Almost every time, unless I formatted the floppy disk first, loading an image onto a floppy left the diskette unreadable on other computers. If I set the option to always format the diskette before writing to it, it would work fine in other computers.

    Viewing the contents of an image file is not supported. You can't extract individual files or overwrite individual files in the image to modify the floppy image. You have to use a program like WinImage for that functionality.

    Also, I was able to use WinImage to open .img files created by Floppy Image, but was not able to use Floppy Image to open .img files created by WinImage. If you want more flexibility with and exposure to the contents of your floppy image files, Floppy Image is not the tool for you.
