"Great for making exact copies of floppies"
Version: Floppy Image 2.4
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.
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.
