Prerequisites for saving floppy images
You can save the image that is loaded into any virtual floppy.
This has a very obvious usage:
However, you can also save images that haven't been uploaded.
In other words, you can load an image and then save it as another
image. Why is this interesting?
No matter why you want to save an image, the procedure is the same.
You can load an image in one format, and save it in another
The only prerequisite for saving an image
is that the image has been loaded or uploaded.
Choose "Save Image..." from floppy menu
To save a loaded (or uploaded image) first you must either:
The save window will pop-up, allowing you to select two things:
- Choose Disk 0 > Save Image... (if you are working with Disk 0)
- "Right click" on the disk drive image, and chose "Save"
- The name of the file to save into. Choose Browse... to select an existing file,
or just type in a file name.
- The format in which the save should be done.
|Note that the picture here may be out of date.
As new formats are supported, they will appear
in the selection list.
|Saving an image in a format other than one compatible with it
will have unspecified results. For example, saving an Apple NIB
image to a TRS-80 JVC format probably won't work anywhere.
Also, some formats lose information. For example,
saving an uploaded image in JV1 format loses any special sector
numbering that may have been on the original image.
