[8:30 AM] Disk Charmer Updated With Numerous Changes

Fabrizio Oddone has updated the disk management utility, Disk Charmer, to version 3.1.5. Managing non-Mac OS native disks can sometimes be problematic, and the built in management utilities in the Mac OS are somewhat limited in scope and power. Disk Charmer allows greater flexibility and control over disk volumes. Version 3.1.5 adds support for OS 8.5's Navigation Services. According to Fabrizio Oddone:

Disk Charmer is a neat utility that lets you conveniently erase and copy disks, and handle disk images in Disk Copy 4.x and DiskDup+ format. If you have Mac OS 8.1, you can now use the Mac OS Extended format (a.k.a. HFS Plus) and even set the minimum allocation block size. Disk Charmer lets you create larger disks: you gain 9K on 800K disks, 19K on HD disks, 1.5MB on Zips, 2.1M on MO230 disks.

Disk Charmer is available as shareware for US$10. You can find more information at the Disk Charmer web site.
