How do I create a VHD on a CoCo SDC?

Recommended Posts

How do I create a virtual *Hard* disk on a CoCo SDC? I don't care if it's a .dsk, .vhd, .big, or whatever, I just want the largest drive possible without any unnecessary complications. I understand that's about 2 gig. The SDC Explorer command to create a disk makes a floppy image. Can I resize it?

why not just download a pre made empty vhd image and populate it as you see fit?

Empty.zip

I found one on the Color Computer Archive, but I was hoping for something bigger.

Hi!!  Long Time no Speak....   :) 
Are you making this an RS-DOS HD Image or NitrOS9/OS9 Image???   128 MB seems to be the largest practical Disk.

The ToolShed Utilities work really good for these sorts of things...
