XGS file extension - Disk image file
What is xgs file? How to open xgs files?
File type specification:
The xgs file extension is associated with the XGS Disk image file format
A "disk image" is typically a file containing every data byte on a diskette- i.e. Catalog tracks, files, DOS (if present) etc.. One kind of disk image, NIB, tries to preserve all disk information (e.g. sector headers, sync bytes, etc.)
Apple II emulators running on a PC, Mac, etc. treat disk image files like diskettes. Disk image files are also a handy way to archive Apple II disks on hard disk and to maintain wares on ftp and other download sites.
This image is usually 800K in size (identical to the newer 2IMG format), and is the older proprietary format used by the earlier versions of XGS. It has been superseded by the 2IMG Universal Format.
