Using a real HDD with Arculator

Postby Pasty » Thu Sep 07, 2017 3:20 pm

I have 2 archimedes with battery damage so I would like to use an emulator and use the files I have on the various HDD on those machines. Could I use a backup program to take an image of a HDD and then save this as an HDF file ? If not does anyone know how to achieve this?

Do you have a linux install on a computer with an IDE interface? Then you can use dd to image the disk and then access the image. See this thread.

I use a raspberry pi with riscOS installed to read and write to the first partition of an Arc HDD. I'm using a CF to IDE as the HDD on the Arc and CF USB reader for the Pi but it may also work with an IDE drive and a IDE to USB adaptor.

Hi I have got Windows 10 and not Linux or Raspbery pi unfortunately. I was just wondering if a disc image using something like Paragon might be equivalent to an hdf file?
