A Graphical Tool for formatting floppy disks
- Formateado rápido o completo
- Comprobación de sectores defectuosos (verificando la integridad)
- Puede etiquetar discos
- Se pueden usar opciones de línea de comandos
- Compatible con los sistemas de archivos DOS, ext2, UFS y Minix.
A floppy cannot be formatted if it is mounted.
- Select the floppy drive which contains the media to be formatted
- Select the size of the floppy to be used. In most cases it is safe to leave this as "Auto-Detect", and should be changed only when encountering size related issues during formatting
- Select a filesystem to be used
- If the desired filesystem is not listed, check the box at the bottom of the window, it may provide a reason
- Not all supported filesystems are usable on floppy disks
- Select the type of format to perform
- Quick Format is as the name implies, the fastest process. It does check for bad blocks or other errors
- Zero out and quick format will overwrite each sector with zeroes. This should not be relied on for securely erasing a disk, only a quick method of destroying data
- Full format will format the media, and check for bad blocks and other filesystem defects if possible
- Check Verify Integrity if KFloppy is to check if the format was successful
- Provide a name for the floppy, if desired
- Click Format to format the media
