dosfstools

utilities for making and checking MS-DOS FAT filesystems

Variants:
The dosfstools package includes the mkdosfs (aka mkfs.dos and mkfs.vfat) and dosfsck (aka fsck.msdos and fsck.vfat) utilities, which respectively make and check MS-DOS FAT filesystems on hard drives or on floppies.

This version uses the enhanced boot sector/superblock format of DOS 3.3+ as well as provides a default dummy boot sector code.

Atari format support
====================

Both mkdosfs and dosfsck now can also handle the Atari variation of
the MS-DOS filesystem format. The Atari format has some minor
differences, some caused by the different machine architecture (m68k),
some being "historic" (Atari didn't change some things that M$
changed).

Both tools automatically select Atari format if they run on an Atari.

mkdosfs - Make DOS file system utilty.


I wrote this, partially to complement the dosfsck utility written by Werner
Almesberger (who graciously gave me some pointers when I asked for some
advice about writing this code), and also to avoid me having to boot DOS
just to create data partitions (I use Linux to back up DOS :-) ).

The code is really derived from Remy Card's mke2fs utility - I used thi
