Found this on another disk. It appears to be a very ancient version of Apple DiskCopy that I cannot even inspect, as it refuses to run on anything but a 128k Original Macintosh. Also included is FontMover, that also seems to be another very early version of this utility.

First upload: Zipped 400k disk image (bootable)

Please contact me or comment if you actually own a 128k Mac and try this out. I cannot test it.

Architecture: 68k

A note about path randomisation in macOS.
If you want to run the apps from the 2nd DL in Sierra or higher, a security feature prevents MiniVMac from finding the ROM file.
To circumvent that, open a Terminal window and type in "sudo xattr -rc” without the quotes.
Next drag the app in question into the Terminal window and hit return.
You are requested to type in your pasword. Done. The app should run.

The second DL has two similar builds of the 128k flavour of MiniVMac
The apps are 32bit coded for Intel Mac and should run with OSX 10.6 to 10.14.
DiskCopy is working on my side, but where or how can I insert a floppy? Wink
Actually it seems possible to drag the source floppy onto the MiniVMac screen, but DiskCopy crashes on my side when adding the target floppy image.

As far as I can tell, this DiskCopy version is on some early System disks like System 1, 1.1, 2.0.1 and maybe a few others.
