Copy the contents of a floppy disk to a second floppy. Also creates, copies and restores floppy disk image files.
  diskcopy source destination [options]
If the source and/or destination is a drive, for example "a:" then it is treated as a floppy disk, otherwise it is treated as an image file.

The source and destination can be the same drive; diskcopy will first copy from the source, and then prompt you to swap floppy disks. Then it will write to the destination.


  Doesn't do anything in FreeDOS diskcopy.
  In other versions of DOS, this copied the first side only.

  Verify that the data is copied correctly.


Diskcopy uses the Linux rawrite format for its image files. Therefore the image files from Diskcopy can be used by Rawrite and vice versa.

Diskcopy cannot read from or overwrite Linux floppy disks. It can, however, write a Linux floppy image to a DOS disk.
