Disk Copy 6 is a complete rewrite of Apple's earlier disk duplication software Disk Copy 4.2, which it obsoleted. It bears little resemblance to its earlier namesake other than it can mount and write to Disk Copy 4.2 format as an option if required. Disk Copy 6 now supported copying, creating, converting, and mounting Disk Copy 4.2 and NDIF disk images, adding support for AppleScript, log files, CRC-32 checksums, DiskScripts, and digital signatures. It is a very useful program for mounting disk and CD images in classic Mac OS environments. It works with .IMA, .IMG files, and others, and runs under Mac OS 7.0.1 to Mac OS 9.2.2.

Although the last official public release of Disk Copy for Mac OS 9 was version 6.3.3, there was to be a version 6.5 that supported OS X's UDIF image format. But because Apple had stopped support for OS 9 already, support for the old OS was eventually removed in favor of Mac OS X. As such the OS 9 version of 6.5 only ever made it to beta 13 before development on it stopped. There was also a developer version 6.4 that 6.5 was based on and had most of the same functionality, but as a developer version it was never released. Although version 6.4 and 6.5 will read DMG images when the system is booted into OS 9, they can only do so if the image is not compressed.

Excerpt: Wikipedia article on Disk Copy

Disk Copy can support a large number of type of data programs, compressed and read-only images, as below:

See Also: Disk Copy 4.2

Similar products:

MungeImage 1.2.0
ShrinkWrap 2.1
ShrinkWrap 3.5.1

Architecture: 68k PPC

Some features are not available for earlier versions of the Mac OS. For example; creating Self Mounting Images (.smi) requires Disk Copy 6.3 and later & Mac OS 8.1 or later. However ".smi" images created by Disk Copy 6.3x can self-mount on Mac OS systems from System Software 7.0.1 to Mac OS 9.2.2 and without a copy of Disk Copy 6 being installed on that system.

Note: All versions of the Disk Copy 6 series up to and including version 6.3.3 are FAT encoded (both 68k & PPC native), and can be used by Macintoshes that are capable of running Mac OS's from 7.0.1 to 9.2.2.
— The unofficial 6.4 internal release requires a PPC Mac and Mac OS 8.5.1 or newer
— The 6.5x betas are PPC only, requiring Mac OS 9.1 or newer (and are incompatible with SheepShaver).

Are you sure it handles .DMG files? (under Basilisk)
how come nobody mention that before,

When I first uploaded some things to the site, I used DiskCopy images that were "read-only compressed" only to later realize that emulators can only mount "read-only" uncompressed. I wonder if that's the case with this archive.

Had a little trouble copying with HFVExplorer, but works fine directly through My Computer.

Added all the documentation and extra files I could find for versions 4.2, 6.3.3, and 6.5b13.

Okay, I've added this application to the new 'Utilities' category. It's a bit similar to 'Development Tools', but I think there's a difference, we'll see how we go.

I agree, there needs to be something like "Utility" or similar, as OS was the closest I could think of since it interacts directly with how the OS works...

@ IIGS_User

Not sure if the category should be 'Operating Systems', is there another category that could be better suited?

Perfect screenshot that describes how this application works.
