Format 720K floppy disk in Windows XP
Helping my dad today with some old disks, we realised that in XP Microsoft removed the 720K option from the GUI format tool, and the
/F:720 flag is gone from
FORMAT on the command line! Fortunately if you specify the tracks and sectors manually it recognises the 720K disk and formats it.
FORMAT A: /T:80 /N:9
I don't have any machines with floppy drives running Vista or 7, but I assume this still works in later versions.
