ok i have a set of win 95 upgrade diskettes for win 3.1 . and i want to make a backup copy of these. but i can not do such a thing because for some reason the disks are special in being that they can hole 1.70mb instead of the normal 1.44. is there anything i can do to make this work? :)

no my systems are fine, i have a friend which has a old at&t laptop w/ 3.1 on it and all it has is a floppy drive so he wants to upgrade it to 95 just for fun, there's nothing wrong with 95 or 3.1

You need winimage from http://www.winimage.com/download.htm

It will format your 1.44 disks to 1.72

WinImage does that and much more John0877. Give it a try. It will even span diskettes across CDs :)
