Inside Macintosh: Files /
Chapter 5 - Disk Initialization Manager / Disk Initialization Manager Reference


The Disk Initialization Manager provides two routines (DILoad and DIUnload) that allow you to load and unload the package. The DIBadMount routine has two uses: to format uninitialized disks that the user inserts and to reinitialize volumes by erasing their data without changing their names. Last, three low-level routines (DIFormat, DIVerify, and DIZero) allow you to perform the steps of formatting, verifying, and zeroing the disk separately.
