I want to make a backup copie of all my installation disks of OS/2 WARP V3.
I can only "diskcopy" (under W2K) disk Installation and disk 1. For all the others I get "no files" on the disk.
What can be wrong? How can I copy them?

the reason why you can't copy the rest of the diskettes is that data is stored in a special format called XDF.
The disks can be copied from os/2 using the XDFCOPY.EXE util.
I think a dos version is included in IBM PC DOS ver 7.0.
I think there once was a copying program called dcf.exe that could also handle this format, but details are a bit foggy since it's quite a long time ago since i was last through that floppy-hell.

I found this link(s) at http://hobbes.nmsu.edu using xdf as a search word. I do not know if it relates to what you are looing for.
