ManageDsk is a small tool which allows :

  • Create a empty .DSK file (in DATA format),
  • Add some files in an existing .DSK file,
  • Extract some files from an existing .DSK file,
  • Rename some files contained in a .DSK file,
  • Delete some files contained in a .DSK file,
  • And since version 0.15, Read/Write DSK files from/to a 3,5" floppy

You can find it here : Amstradeus

In the download section : Download

UNIX port

Sid made a port of ManageDSK to Linux, Mac Os X and other UNIX OS. This port is command-line only but features all the important functionnalities for managing DSK files. You can download it at homepage.

This tool works on all unix platforms, unlike cpcfs/cpcxfs which suffers from many endianness problems and can't work on powerPC, for example. The command line interface is designed for easy integration in a makefile, making it more efficient for cross-development.

You will probably want to use dsktools to write the dsk image to a real floppy.
