Alkonost MaxFormat icon Format your floppy disks either in a full mode or when needed by selecting capacity, drive, creating and saving data images, and modifying labels

Storage devices rapidly evolved to what’s now known as a cloud service. Sure, it’s not the only one, and it all started with incredibly small disks, with capacities of less than and around 1 MB. In case you still own a floppy drive and care for your disks, you can use Alkonost MaxFormat, an application specialized in formatting floppy disks.

Compact but intuitive interface

The application doesn’t take a lot of time to install, and it even works on modern Windows iterations. Just make sure to run the setup package with administrator privileges in case you run into any problems. The window can be brought up instantly and you’re now ready to format your floppy disks.

You quickly figure out how to use the program features, and this is because the clever arrangement of options. Even though the window is pretty compact and there are quite a few options, the overall feel is intuitive enough.

Choose capacity, drive, and other options

There are various options to configure before initiating a process. One of the first is to choose the capacity of the disk, which can range from 360 KB to DMF2 disk types. If there are more connected drives, you can choose the one of interest, the format type which can be full or when needed, whether or not to verify disks, make bootable, and handle the drive label.

Heading over to the settings panel is where you can choose to save your options on exit, and whether or not to enable the “disk is not empty” confirmation. Images of disks can be saved for later use, just in case floppy disk management is a regular task.
