When you talk about a floppy emulator that can storage more than one single floppy disk in the media you need to include all the files of this single floppy disk into a “File” or “Folder” in the file system. All of the others floppy emulators use application tools with non-standards file systems. Then you have not other option that use an special application to manage your files. If the supplier of this product don’t update this tool ( i.e. if this tool just is working on old Windows XP ) you have not another option. You only are able to use this specific tool. By contrast, our Applications Tools use standard files system ( images files .ima ), the you can manage your disks directly using Windows or DOS and inject or extract your files using open tools like WinImage, Nero, etc. ( you can use any program that manage .ima files ). This mean that with FlexiDrive products you have Windows file system compatibility for the future.
