Need a good ADF-Tool for writing back onto disk

Hi there!

What's the best tool to write ADF's back to disk?
To be on the safe side I'd like to have a verify and format option...
... and a nice gui would be fine.

I've tried some, but some of them (like ADFBlitzer) have no verify, others are full of annoying messages in the likes of 'Are you ABSOLUTELY sure to write on this disk? Because if you DO write on the inserted disk you will loose ALL - and we mean ALL - your data. Evtl. you should consider to take another disk. blablabla and so on..."

Anyone have a good handy tool?

Try ADF-Blitzer


Oh, sorry!
I didn´t see you already tried ADF-Blitzer.
What´s wrong with it?

Why do you need a verify option?

I'm using ADF Blitzer and sometimes Tracksaver, which has a "Format while writing" option. Both a convenient enough for me.

I need verify because I don't want to end up with bad dumps on faulty disks. And I have time enough for verify :-)

I'm using TSGui, but it always has these damned "Are you sure that you..." requesters.
Years ago I used another tool with gui AND verify but can't remember which one it was.

Have a look here and see if you recognise the name of the program you used to use

... How do I transfer my old games to the PC? How do I transfer my ADFs to my Amiga?

Codetapper's TrackTool would be a good choice but it has no gui (but then again no requesters since it's a cli utility and it has a verify switch). TransADF is another one worth mentioning.

A small email to the author would help to improve it. It shouldn't be a big deal to add a "don't show me safety requesters" option for advanced users.

ADF2Disk is a good cli tool and supports verifying
