Folder mount utility???

Post by rpi »

Hello,
Is there any utility (a desktop accessory) which takes a folder on the hard drive and maps it as a virtual floppy drive A:?
It would be very useful for programs (and games) that assume a floppy, but many people have their collection on the hard drive in folders.

Such programs typically are bootet right from the floppy, so even if such a program exists, i doubt that it would work in those cases.
