Software News   Software News : New version of EasyADF
   posted by amigakit on 28-May-2007 17:29:48 (6991 reads)
We are pleased to announce a new version of EasyADF is now available.

EasyADF is a application to quickly create/decompress Amiga Disk Files (ADF). ADFs are commonly used with Amiga Emulators such as Amiga Forever and as a format of storing Amiga disks on mediums such as the Internet.


New Features include:

- EasyADF can transfer ADF archives to external drives and RAD: (Recoverable RAM drive)

- EasyADF can now make ADF archives from external floppy disks and RAD: (Recoverable RAM drive)

- EasyADF can be iconfied to an AppIcon on Workbench. ADF, LHA, LZX*, ZIP* archives can be simply dropped over the Appicon and quickly decompressed.

* = requires UNLZX and UNZIP to be in your C drawer (available for Aminet- not included)

- ADF files can now be compressed to ZIP or GZIP archives

- Various bugfixes and optimisations have been made to the program.

Existing customers can obtain the upgrade for free by contacting us through our support system:

http://amigakit.leamancomputing.com/catalog/support.php

EasyADF is exclusive to AmigaKit.com and part of the EasyADF CF Transfer Kit:

Does this program allow an Amiga to write a non-standard disk image from an ADF for use on a real Amiga? For example, I have several corrupt disks, but I have ADF images of them which I use on WinUAE, however I'd like to write them to DSDD disks for use on a real Amiga. The ADF programs I've used so for won't write usable disks from ADFs like "Elite".

Try transdisk (comes with WinUAE). Not sure about currupt disks but don't lose anything by trying...

@Darrin

It says that EasyADF can extract ADFs to external drives and RAD: There must be a technical issue with copying them to DF0:

If you have an external drive, then you can just extract to DF1: / DF2: etc. or if you don't have an external drive, mount RAD: then do a diskcopy RAD: DF0:

I assume that's how it works, I have the previous version of EasyADF, just written to apply for my free upgrade

There are also utilities to mess with the drive names, so you could make DF0: become DF1:

I have not used such a utility for many years, but I think it was useful when an internal drive had failed but particular games/software required DF0:

No, it can write to DF0: as well. They are listing the *new* features in the above item, so now it can write to DF1-3 and RAD as well.

@ xeron

Cheers for the verification, I wasn't sure. I have only used the utility for lha extraction thus far.

Thnaks for the tips. I'd used transtisk before and that wa sthe one that failed on a few non-standard bootblock disks... unless it was a case of my 15-20 year old floppy disks are just too unreliable now.

@Darrin

There is at least one program that allows you to mount ADF files on Workbench. It has a GUI that allows you to swap disk in virtual DF0-3 drives.

It was the only way I could install Wordworth 6 on my A1. Unfortunately the A1 is broken at the moment and I can't remember the name of the app or whether I got it from Aminet or somewhere else.

You're probably talking about FMS. I use it with my microA1 because the motherboard doesn't support floppy drives. There is also a utility to copy ADF files to the FMS disks, a lot like transdisk. It doesn't copy them back, though. You might be able to use transdisk for that, although I haven't tried. I recommend FMS. It's available on aminet.
