GoADF!2020 version 3.1.1 build 6221 (28.11.2020)


Nowadays, the vast majority of Amiga software available online comes
in ADF format.

ADF files (Amiga Disk Format) are Amiga's disks put together,
byte after byte, into a one file.

Such files are commonly known as floppy disk images. The content of the disk
does not matter for the floppy disk image, nor does its format.

Thanks to that any Amiga disk can be transferred to the ADF format.
That is why ADF files are very convinient substitutes of physical media
as they can be easily shared online or used along with WinUAE emulator.

But what if we would like to use such file in a real Amiga computer?
It would be a little complicated because the ADF file itself is considered
a foreign file that Amiga cannot directly use.

That is when GoADF! app does best. This app allows even the begginer users
of Amiga to acquire data from the ADF file in an easy and intuitive way.

Main features of GoADF!

There are many functions in GoADF! app that allow you to use ADF files
in your Amiga computer.

The features include in particular:

- Reading information about the ADF file through reading and
interpretation of all types of Amiga's disks blocks OFS/FFS:
- is bootable
- is DOS disk (or NDOS)
- type of filesystem (OFS / FFS (INTL/DC/LNFS))
- disk label
- dates of modification and creation disk
- disk size
- disk usage
- and many others

- Support for many image disk formats:
- plain ADF
- ADZ (gzipped ADF)
- DMS (Disk Masher Image files)
- HFE (for the SD HxC Floppy Emulator hardware)

- File exploration mode (only ADF from DOS disks)- allows to browse
the content of the files in ADF file, similarly to the file manager
apps. Also, details about files and folders (type, date,
size and properties) are viewed.
It is possible to enter deep into folder's structure and extract
the files directly from ADF file to the hard disk.

- Block exploration mode - based on disk editors, allows to browse
content of the ADF file, block after block each block of the disk is
presented as HEX and ASCII board.

- ADF files to physical disks recording mode - intuitive GUI with
drive choice and disc formatting options.
The operation is presented on the original graphical and logical floppy
disk image (based on XCopy).

- ADF files to one of eight virtual drives (ADO to AD7) mounting mode
allows to mount DOS and NDOS disks to the virtual drives.
In this way ADF files appear to the operating system as normal
disks put into the disk drive, from where they can be operated,
for example, by the Directory Opus.

In order to operate virtual drives, adf.device packet is being used,
with the permission of the author - Bjoern Fuglsang.
The packet (included in GoADF!) is also available at:

- Quick access to all ADF files in one folder - easy access to ADF
stored on the hard disk by uploading the list of ADF files from
the selected folder to the list in GoADF! app.
