Maybe this helps narrow down the issue with DiskInfo.

The versions of diskinfo.c in the Main Branch ABIv0 & the current version in ABIv1 are the same.
However, the version in Alt-ABIv0 is different. For example on line 280 it uses volname to set the window title.
But the newer version used __(MSG_WINTITLE) or something like that instead so that the title is "Disk Info".

See screenshot of the newest version.

There are however a few minor issues that I noticed while using DiskInfo along with DiskImage GUI for ADF Images & PC Floppy Images.

For ADF Images the Block Size is listed as '488' but according to documentation it should be '512' instead. Therefore calculations for Used/Free is off.

For PC 1440kb Floppy Images the Capacity is listed as '2880 Blocks' (1474560 bytes) but it should be 2847 Blocks (1457664 bytes).

Capacity is not the same as total sectors. Those things can be easily fixed. Not sure if they have been fixed already.

This depends on the FileSystem, Floppy OFS Block Size '488', Floppy FFS Block Size 512'

Floppy OFS space 837.8K, Floppy FFS 869,5K  (see screenshot)

For the Hardisk why do you use OFS? SFS in my opinion is the Best FileSystem I use it also on my OS3 systems

About PC 1440kb Floppy Images the Capacity '2880" Blocks seems to be exact, at least in the link below attached, if I understand English well they confirm that size.

@AMIGASYSTEM

Some of the information reported by DiskInfo for certain disk images is incorrect. That should be fixed for consistency.

I suppose it would be better to setup a test install based on the latest ISO that deadwood provided to test various components.

On IcarosDesktop 2.2.8 I tested Dopus4 for renaming files. It seemed to work correctly.

What were the circumstances when you noticed corrupted files?

Just trying to help to identify any potential problems.  :)

miker the problem is only on Volumes in "FAT32" (rename uppercase/case), this happens with Deadwood Distribution (see attached video), but also with Icaros.

see video Dopus4

All this with Dopus4 also happens with the Floppy PC (FAT16), if you rename uppercase/case the file disappears

The Corrupt File was only for the "muimaster.library" which did not show the volume name.

@deadwood

In your Distribution you have Diskimage v52.31, on rchives.aros-exec.org there is a newer version v52.34

I add that in Diskimage for 386 there is not the DosDriver IPC0 and IPC1, instead there is PC0 but you have to correct it otherwise Diskimage will not find it again.

IF you need it I can attach my IPC0 and IPC1 for Floppy 1.44 MB, see my screenshot attached above

You are talking about missing window title?

deadwood is always the same problem that is solved by replacing the library MUI, at the moment I no longer experience any problems with name Title Volumes  and name Titles Window Applications

Hi deadwood, i was fixing various file associations with ZuneARC, the only application on AROS able to unzip all common archives like LHA, LZX, RAR, TAR, ZIP, BZ2, GZ and 7z.

Problem encountered is that the DEF ICONS of RAR and 7z archives are not recognized by Wanderer (see attached video).

Question: Who manages the Deficons on AROS? Is there a preference program to add the .RAR and .7z extensions? (see screenshot)

Moreover the Icons archives LZX, BZ2, GZ and TAR  are associated with a Generic Archive !

DEF ICONS descriptors are managed in AROS repository in workbench/devs/datatypes directory. I know how you can generate them if you are building AROS, but I don't know how you can do it outside of build process. Maybe ask Paolo - I believe he created the missing descriptors for Icaros.

If you want to build AROS so that you can generate the needed descriptors, let me know.

Thanks, I've never compiled if it's not a complicated thing I could try.

Also on Icaros 230 with "Wanderer" the RAR and 7z Archives are not recognized in addition to the LHAs (on AROS One the LHAs are recognized).

On Icaros with "Dopus5" the LZX and BZ2 Archives are not recognized.

Now I check on workbench/devs/datatypes if there are descriptors for archives.
