"Format floppy disks in Win32 enviroment. Used undocumented API functions of shell32.dll."

http://bes.trendline.co.il/torry/vcl/filedrv/tformat.zip

"Non-visual component used to format floppy disks. This component will format floppies to the current standard formats for 3.5 inch disk of 1.4Meg and 720K, and the 5.1/4 inch disks of 1.2Meg, and 360K.. In addition to formatting floppies, TFormat can also verify, make bootable, clear disks, and format only when needed." (originally made for D1)
