    Has anyone tried Active@ Disk Image for DOS? Is it reliable?

    I noticed that it is listed as "Free". Did it used to be "payware"?

    Thanks in Advance.

    Not a direct answer : I use the A@DiskImage for Windows version, it has been very reliable so far.

    Since it can only use a FAT or FAT 32 formatted drive for storage that would seem to be a limiting factor...

    All of my recent external drives have came formated NTFS.

    It takes special tools to format a large drive fat 32.

    To me that's why it has been released as free-ware, future revenue / development will be very slim at best.

    IMHO

    So that is why it did not work when I gave it a try yesterday with my Windows XP Pro ntfs formatted hard drives. It seemed to recognize the drive partition that I was trying to image but the possible destination drives would not show up.

    That sounds like the culprit, unless it doesn't have the drivers for whatever the other drive was...however, the NTFS issue is likely the reason.

    Looks like it can be for older Windows versions as well.
