Guides on emulating older applications

DART (Disk Archive/Retrieval Tool) was an internal to Apple and Developers only, disk archiving software. Like Disk Copy 4.2, DART can create byte for byte disk images of floppy disk media. It also uses compression enabling much smaller file sizes. Unlike Disk Copy 4.2, DART was never licensed for public distribution and remained largely unknown outside of Apple circles.

The DL above is DART 1.5.3, the final version from 1993.

Architecture: 68k

Can run on some emulators such as Basilisk II (build 142, Windows) and Mini vMac with limited success. Requires actual hardware with internal floppy disk drives for 100% compatibility.

Does not mount disk images.
