The best program for floppy images.

It lost 2 stars because ALL settings are stored in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\WinImage and there's no way to store it locally, like in an .ini file.

A damn shame. I wish this app was portable.

Excellent program. I've been a registered user since version 6. I bought the program to work with floppy images. I now use it to to edit ISO images. To me, the value of the program has far exceeded its purchase cost.

Excellent program. From ISOs, to DVD ISOS, to excellent floppy writing support, this program is superior, inexpensive and the author is an honest person who doesn't invalidate legit. licenses like FlashFXP. 2 thumbs up. Gawd, that was a super igornamus comment.

Excellent program. Does what it says it will do and does it well. I have tried many other tools but nothing has matched WinImage yet.

gawd21: So what? You're not the only person in the world. WinImage has other uses besides being a floppy utility. It's like saying that a certain Mac app sucks because you use Windows.
Lame comment.

gawd21, whether or not you use a floppy drive has nothing to do with the quality of this program. In fact why are you even reviewing it when you obviously don't use it. This program is actually very useful even for people who don't have floppy drives. You can use it to create disk images to mount in VMware or Virtual PC. WinImage is one of my must have programs, I used it today in fact. It supports CD and DVD images also, and works very well. I've never had any issues with it. In any case whether or not you believe many people still do use floppy disks. Try thinking next time before you post nonsense.

Not one of our servers or workstations even have a floppy drive. It's so dated that I don't even know anyone personally that still uses them.

DIRKES, most corporate businesses use floppies in their IT as an effecient and purposeful tool for diagnostics, checkups, and much more. Floppies are far from dead, except for a percentage of home users.

Also, WinImage can manipulate CD and DVD image files as well.

Invaluble tool.

Well DIRKES, I am a computer tech and I still use them at work. I am sure lots of other people do too. But it isnt just for fdd's its for making, reading, and editing, floppy and cd/dvd images. Its a great program, always has been.

Tokar, I agree that on 7.0 (and until 7.09c), the extraction progress indicator was not good : it was updated only after extracting a file, so if you extracted a very big file, it was not updated before the file was terminated.

With 7.09e, the progress bar is more often updated.

Dirkes, sounds like you have no idea what you are talking about. Have you even used this program? If not don't try to review it. Anyway, enough about that. This is an excellent imaging program, I've been using it for years. The addition of VHD hard disk image support is a wonderful feature. For those who use VirtualPC this is a great utility to have.

A must if you work with either Virtual PC or VMware for its virtual floppy disk creation.

This new version also adds support for Microsoft virtual hard disk format allowing the user to read/write a VHD (read only for NTFS partitions in a VHD) which is an excellent feature.

great for archiving old dos games before the discs decay. we need to get on that before it is too late people.

also can we stop revewing this program low becose we think people should not be using floppies anymore? The prime use of this program is to image your old floppies (and if you have been using a computer for atleast the past 10 years you should have tons of them) so you no longer have to use them anymore and there contnt remains safe. Using a CD for that is not very ideal becose it does not preserve the original structure should you ever ened to transfer it back to a floppy.

Who still uses disks in the today's time?
Perhaps now and then, but must i pay 30 US$ for this?
If i make a Image, I must use a DVD-ROM...or want you use 289 HD-floppys for this job :-))

UltraISO lets you insert stuff into CD Image files...
WinImage doesnt...

Same deal with modifying the boot sector.

Overall great image viewer...but i would like to modify images as well...

The extraction needs a better progress indicator...
