Title: Update of VFDISK.SYS in view of upcoming new version of FAT32.IFS
Post by: Lars on May 02, 2017, 08:19:56 am
Hallo,

I have uploaded to Hobbes version 5.0 of VFDISK.SYS. It contains a fix so that the FAT12/FAT16 support that comes with the new FAT32.IFS can peacefully coexist with VFDISK.SYS.

VFDISK.SYS is a device driver to emulate floppy media.

Works good.  One thing I noticed is that it shows as version 4.0 on bootup.  I had no problem installing WPS Security with this driver installed.  Before installing it, I had to direct WPS Security install to a FAT32 drive.  It took me a while to figure this out because the program kept looking for a fat boot disk.

That's quite easy to fix http://trac.netlabs.org/vfdisk/ticket/1 (http://trac.netlabs.org/vfdisk/ticket/1). I use vfdisk mostly for LAN automation tasks, for local use I still prefer the more powerful SVDISK.
