Mtools is a collection of utilities to access MS-DOS disks from GNU and Unix without mounting them. It supports Win'95 style long file names, OS/2 Xdf disks and 2m disks (store up to 1992k on a high density 3 1/2 disk). In addition to file access, it supports many FAT-specific features: volume labels, FAT-specific file attributes (hidden, system, ...), "bad block" map maintenance, access to remote floppy drives, Iomega ZIP disk protection, "secure" erase, display of file's on-disk layout, etc.

Mtools' configurator file is stored in /etc/mtools.conf

It's useful to have a precompiled set of binaries, like this. :thumbsup:

 

Along the same lines as this, is hfstools, for Apple stuff.

as reactos-test-packs in direction "update and make usable package"

and add this tools also on the next version too.
