WOZ Disk Images

The WOZ Disk Image format is an offshoot of the Applesauce project. Capturing highly accurate bit data is of no use if you don’t have a container to hold the data. The WOZ format was designed to be able to contain every possible Apple ][ disk structure and layout. It can be so accurate that even copy protected software can’t tell that it isn’t an original disk.

The WOZ Disk Image format has been placed into the public domain and dedicated to the Apple ][ community.

If you wish to add WOZ support to your project, please see theĀ WOZ Disk Image Reference. A set of test disk images can be found here. If you have created something that works with WOZ files and would like to be added to this list, please let us know.
