I want to read a disk by sector and store this as image
on harddrive. Also I want to write this image from the
harddrive onto another disc, so this new disc becomes
an exact copy of the original one. This means, that a
copy of a boot disk also will be bootable. Must only work
with 1.44 MB disk-drives.
On my first C compiler MS-Quick C 2.5 for DOS (long time
ago, got it 1989 !) I found a function called _bios_disk(),
which was able to read a disk by sector using INT13.
Also in old Turbo C++ 3.0 for DOS there was a function
But how I can read/write disc by sector using Visual C++ 6.0?
It must be possible unter Windows, because there is a Win32
program called 'Winimage' which does this. But I want to
do this by myself, so I need some information.
So many thanks everybody for any hints!
