The page Floppy.sys is a short article on something that should have a lot more information written on it.
If you know anything else about it, you are STRONGLY encouraged to add the information in. If you are unsure of proper formatting or style, add it to the talk page or this page itself as you think best and others will help.


Floppy.sys is the name of the SCSI class Floppy Disk driver in ReactOS and Microsoft Windows.

Purpose

Design

TBD

Status

ReactOS contains two different floppy.sys codebases:

  • ReactOS native, started 2004
    Commit history (Source code can be found in: /reactos/drivers/storage/floppy)
  • Original Microsoft, started 1991, open-sourced in 2015, integrated into ReactOS in 2018
    Commit history (Source code can be found in: /reactos/drivers/storage/floppy_new)

Because the Microsoft driver is the official reference, our kernel shall be modified so that the Microsoft driver can be used in the future. This is a work-in-progress.
