FAT12 support

Post by hjb » Wed Aug 11, 2004 7:11 am

Hi!

Yesterday I made a somewhat shocking experience: PartImage 0.6 doesn't support FAT12 partitions! Why? Since FAT16 is supported, it shouldn't be a problem, should it?

Thanks,

FAT12

I don't think there is much call to image partition less then 33 MB.

err.. FAT12 can only be 33MB. So, then you have no need for PartImage to back up FAT12, either convert it to FAT16 or FAT32. Or maybe just burn the files to a CD and be done with it.

Lucky me, I've found a FAT12 partition and was going to use partimage to backup / restore it.

Is it a quick thing to add support?
