MAXI Disk - The easy way to format and copy disks with Windows

Herne Data Systems is pleased to announce the release of MAXI Disk version 4 for Windows 3.x and Windows 95. MAXI Disk is a floppy disk formatting utility that gives more space on the disks.

MAXI Disk version 4 for Windows, offers all of the functionality of the original MAXI Form and MAXI Disk for DOS, along with the capability to:

  • Automatically determine the type and number of floppy drives on your system;
  • Format Microsoft 1.7 meg DMF disks;
  • Format Macintosh 1.44 meg disks;
  • Copy any type of DOS disk in one easy step, including MAXI style extended capacity disks and DMF disks;
  • Copy Macintosh 1.44 meg disk;
  • Analyze an unknown disk and determine its type;
MAXI style extended capacity disks give you 420k on a 360k disk, 800k on a 720k disk, 1.4 meg on a 1.2 meg disk, 1.6 meg on a 1.44 meg disk, and 3.2 meg on a 2.88 meg disk.

MAXI Disk works with Windows 3.1 as well as Windows'95. Like MAXI Form, MAXI Disk will only format floppy disks. It will not let you format a hard drive, even accidentally.

Single user copies of MAXI Disk can be obtained for only $25 (US) or $29 (Canadian, including GST) (plus $2.00 shipping and handling for North American addresses, $4.00 for elsewhere. Unlimited user site licenses are available for $100.00 (US) or $125 (CDN). Evaluation copies are available for download through our web site at:
