TI99/4a emulators running on a PC can use a PC file to represent a TI file, or to represent a TI disk. There are several formats of TI Disk from single sided single density upwards, but the emulators use basically two different ways of representing TI disks as files.

TI99DIR allows you to create emulated TI disks and move files between them, or convert disk format. It can access files creates with Barry Boone's Archiver.

TI99DIR directly allows you to examine the contents of an emulated TI disk, including reading DV80 files, listing programs, and since v4.2a viewing TI Artist pictures.

Since v5.2b it has been able to show MyArt images.

Supports compact Flash disk image copying for the nanoPEB and Compact Flash 7 devices.
