Disk Copy 6.3 Adds and Improves Features

Disk Copy 6.3 Adds and Improves Features -- Apple has released Disk Copy 6.3, a free program for creating and manipulating disk image files, including the New Disk Image Format (NDIF) archives that Apple uses for software updates. Disk Copy 6.3 adds the capability to duplicate floppy disks and create self-mounting disk images (usually identified by an ".smi" extension). In addition, Disk Copy 6.3 supports HFS Plus volumes (under Mac OS 8.1) and Apple's forthcoming Navigation Services (set to debut in Mac OS 8.5). Although the feature is often overlooked, Disk Copy offers significant AppleScript support, including recordability and an attachable Scripts menu; version 6.3 changes some of the AppleScript terminology but also offers new functionality. Disk Copy requires U.S. English System 7.0.1 or later, although many features (such as read/write images and drag & drop support) require System 7.5 or higher. Disk Copy 6.3 can be downloaded in BinHex (983K) or MacBinary (729K) formats. [GD]
