Windows tools for managing ADF images?


During development I often need to copy files to and from an ADF but I have to do this inside WinUAE using the likes of DOPUS.

Are there any native Windows tools for managing Amiga DOS files on a standard ADF that I can use to speed things up?

In my opinion the best solution is FreeCommander XE

Also Total Commander but make sure that you download / setup the AmigaDX plugin

I've forked and built ADFTools for windows : https://github.com/prb28/adftools.
May be a good choice to automatize the ADF Generation in a script.
Although it may have some bugs on windows, the source forked was made for linux, I fixed some bugs on windows but certainly not a all.

With shell extension ADFView you can view ADF in Windows Explorer: http://www.viksoe.dk/adfview/

FreeCommander uses Total Commander plugin AmigaDX to open ADFs: https://freecommander.com/en/summary/

Double Commander also uses same TC plugin and it's available for Windows, Linux, Max OS X and FreeBSD: https://doublecmd.sourceforge.io/

In Linux you can mount ADF and HDF as affs file system.

All that is for ADF and HDF (as hardfile only I think) with OFS and FFS only.

EDIT: AmigaDX plugin only works in Windows (Double Commander related).

ADFView "detects real Amiga hard drives attached to your computer and adds a new drive icon to the "My Computer" folder under Windows NT/2000/XP/Vista/Win7." - from ADFView page. That mean that it can read RDB.
