Floppy disk PROB - ADF files back into Amiga disks

I have been trying to turn some old ADF files back into Amiga disks.

I am using an unmodified A500 with the memory expansion in the bottom, and running WB 2.1

These are the steps that I have been using.

a)Compress FILE.ADF to FILE.LZH on the PC and copy to a 720K IBM disk

b)Uncompress PC0:FILE.LZH: to DF1:FILE.ADF

This is where it fails

The progress display tells me that the file has a total size of 901,120 bytes, and it counts upwards until it reaches around 800,000 bytes then it stops and tells me that the dick is full. ( I think those number are correct)

What am I doing wrong?

How much can a FDD on a A500 hold?

I also have a problem copying it memory, it keeps saying it is full

Dont use this method. Download TransADF and use this program instead. Then take an ADF, GZip it, making it an ADZ, and transfer this ADZ to your Amiga. TransADF will decompress it in the fly and you wont be having problems with your memory or with disk space.

You can also use ZIP instead of GZip, if you want to. just put one ADF per zip and you are set. TransADF will decompress it and write it on the fly to your DF1: drive.

Hope that helps.
