Sarah Dean has made quite a few Free software, most known is the OTFE project:
http://www.freeotfe.org/

On her website:
http://www.sdean12.org/
http://www.sdean12.org/Download.htm

among the available software there is a "USBFlashTools":
http://www.sdean12.o...ashTools100.zip

That appears to be a very nice copy/backup/restore AND dd-like app for USB devices.

Sounds like a good development to keep some attention.

I liked the encrypted disk image feature, didn't tried it out but I'll keep it in mind for future uses.

She also makes her code available in delphi.

Nice find.

;)

FreeOTFE has been updated and now includes the possibility of creating using "plain text" disks, see here:
http://www.freeotfe....ion_history.htm

Appendix A: Version History
v2.10 (19th April 2009)
Added functionality to create simple plaintext disk images, as well as encrypted ones


It may become useful for some projects.

Sarah Dean website is verrry cool,

and FreeOTFE is really verrry gooood,

creating FAT16/32 file and adding files with FreeOTFE Explorer without mounting, yummy
for now i unsuccess creating "plain text" disks without crypting, well no problem ;).
And a note:

MS Windows 2000/XP/Vista/Windows 7 PCs (both 32 and 64 bit)
and Windows Mobile 2003/2005 and Windows Mobile 6 PDAs.

I believe FreeOTFE will be used in a project. Also Maybe amalux like to add to his portable apps if not exists yet (not tested on livexp yet but already put to my personal collection ;) ).


After going around through pages, I feel If i have some security pc related issues for files, I can fully trust Sarah, I am sure in real life noone can touch her jewellery she has since she crypted all boxes, drawers and safe locks very carelfully. :) :) :angry: :cheers:

Thanks to Sarah Dean a LOOOOT for sharing such a hugeee work with open community :cheers:

Well, it's experimental, apparently ONLY added to FreeOTFE Explorer.

Open the latter, then File -> Plaintext Image -> New File (or Mount File)

The created image is apparently a "superfloppy" kind of image, which can be mounted by IMDISK or VDK directly.

I made just a couple of tests, but it seems like the image gets a geometry of nx64x32.

These are good news. Some time ago I had emailed the author requesting a simple option to load plain images on PDA's.

Handy because one can connect the PDA to the USB port of the computer and use wm5storage that will fake a PDA drive as a regular USB pendrive - http://freewareppc.c...wm5torage.shtml

Will test and see if this new version allows to use a PDA as method to boot the computer.
