Amiga & AROS Despite the recent emergence of several new ways to actually run AmigaOS 4.0, the supply of machines is still extremely small, and not very future proof. As such, one of the most recurring questions within the Amiga community is why don't they port the darn thing to x86?

Right now, I could use a utility that would read my saved Amiga-formatted hard disks so I could get all of the data off of them and into my Linux PC.

This is pretty simple. I did it in Linux, because it was handy. It was about 10 years ago, so I don't remember the exactly command I used, but you can simply copy the data from the raw disk device to a file.

IIRC, this disk image file worked fine for me in UAE without modification.
