What is DiskCopy 4.2, 6.0, 6.3.3, 6.4, 6.5b13?

Disk Copy was Apple's disk image creation and mounting tool that shipped with Mac OS starting from 1988 (System 6) up to 2002 (OSX 10.2).  The last version released is beta but works fine, especially that it could mount and allow editing of Mac OS X uncompressed .DMG disk image files under Mac OS 9.1 or later.

This download includes the following versions of DiskCopy:

DiskCopy 4.2: For use with System 6.

DiskCopy 6.3.3: This version shipped with Mac OS 9.0. It supports .IMA, .IMG files, but *not* .DMG files.

DiskCopy 6.4: This is an Apple internal release and can mount/edit uncompressed/unencrypted OSX .DMG disk images.

DiskCopy 6.5b13: Altough a beta version, this was the final release of Disk Copy. It supports .DMG and .CDR formats and requires Mac OS 9.1 or later (up to OSX 10.2).


Note: The functionality of Disk Copy 6.3 and later can be extended with a series of scripts which were made available directly from Apple.  Look in the downloads section to find them.  Here is the description of the scripts taken from Apple's website:

Script Descriptions
Create self-mounting image will prompt the user to select a disk image, verify it, then let the user save it as a self-mounting image

Floppy insert preferences will prompt the user to decide what action Disk Copy will take if a floppy disk is inserted while Disk Copy is the foreground application. The "Make an Image" button will result in the floppy being saved as a disk image, and the "Copy" button will result in the floppy being copied and restored onto another floppy.

Segment Image will ask the user how they want to segment an image (by size or number of parts), prompt the user to select a disk image, verify it, then save the image segmented.

Using the Script Editor or other AppleScript script editor, the contents of the scripts can be viewed.
