WD Utilities

WD Utilities was sold by WDSoftware and was released in three versions:

  • a version for use with microdrives
  • a version for use with QJUMP standard floppy disk interfaces
  • a version for use with the original Micro Peripherals Disk Interface

WD Utilities provides a set of file handling utilities based around a directory tool which could list up to 60 filenames at a time on screen, allowing you to use one key to Load, Print, Copy or Delete files as well as format media and back up files.

The program also include multiple FORMAT commands and a toolkit to make dated, numbered modules for program development.

This may have later been renamed JOSS which seems a very similar utility.
