The DOC images are not images in the normal sense: they are created and used by the m-systems doc utilities and are read from and copied to the DOC directly. Along with what would normally be called an image is appended special boot code and (apparently) some or all of the trueffs code. If you want to extract the image you will need a DOC of the correct size and use putmimg.bat to place the image on the DOC.
The doc util getmimg can be used to create a backup of the DOC. I restart in msdos mode to use this utility (it might work in a dos box but I have not tried.) You can find the utility several places, including m-systems site.
Thanks for the reply. I will try getmimg. But yesterday night, I tried taking an image of the doc using DriveImage and it did create a 20mb file with high compression. Do you know if I can trust this procedure? I am hoping I can restore the DOC as it is by using DriveImage later.
I am not familiar with the driveimage utility you are referring to. I know the m-systems utility copies some stuff that is not visible via the drive letter (i.e. boot code and trueffs drivers.) I don't know if it is needed to restore the drive.
