At best it'll leave its VFAT rubbish all over the place, but the ST should ignore that in most cases. Can anyone confirm whether this approach is possible?
Idea is quite good, and I little forgot about it - even if similar was talked many times.
Actually, "blank TOS 1.0 compatible image" is misleading. Regular DOS 720 KB floppy is compatible with any TOS, and what is more important, with dumb Windows
. So, get FloImg from site if have not, depack somewhere, then go in subdir help and extract file 720PCF.st from small archive EmptyFlops.zip . This is PC DOS (PCF=PC format) floppy image.
Best way is btw. not to write image onto floppy first, but adding files to image. So, open that empty image file in FloImg (Open another image file button) and use File Transfer for adding files. After adding all write it onto floppy.
Btw. all it is possible to get if someone takes effort to read instructions on site or suplied help file
Ah, just to add - when again need empty DOS 720K image, depack it again
Too complicated ? Sorry, I grown on Total Commander (actually, it was Norton in that time) .
P.S. no any rubbish will be created.
