The other day I found an old floppy from the 80's. I inserted it in my USB floppy drive and I got a message from Microsoft security essentials that the disk was infected by a boot virus.
I supposed that a modern AV couldn't fix such an old virus, so, before pressing "fix the problem" I made a disk image with RawwriteWin.
MSE "fixed" the virus with a full drive format. Shoot.
I told myself: "who cares, I have the full image"
Then I noticed my disk was a 720k disk, and rawwritewin only makes 1.44 images (I have a 1.44 mb image)
Rewriting the image on the disk fails.
Reading the image with dosbox fails.
Reading the image with virtualbox fails.
With an hex editor I can see that my middle school data is still in the image, why I can't mount it? It's because it's too big? If I reduce the size to 720k trimming the file, will it work?
Edit: just did
split -b 737280 myimage.img out but dosbox still can't open this image... (can open, but shows empty and with 2 tb free size)
