Floppy type utility?

Recommended Posts

Is there a small utility that will read your floppy and tell you if it's a 400K, 800K or 1.4M? Besides just using Get Info? Disk Copy will tell you that if you load it in as master floppy but it takes a while as it loads it into memory to copy it. I was hoping to find some simple utility that will just say what your floppies are as you put them in.

Is there a reason you can’t just look at the top of the Finder window? Are you looking for an app that does nothing but display floppy capacity so you can check 100 disks in a row or something?

Probably there isn't a utility that does only that, but there's an existing disk utility which shows that information. Maybe something like Disk First Aid? Or another disk copy utility? There are plenty out there. I'm trying to think back if I can remember one specific application.

I found DiskDup+ was the best for this. After you put in the first floppy, it’ll show you the type as it reads it and you can hit Abort & it’ll eject that disk & you can put in another. This is a niche use case, i admit.
