Version 12 (modified by diver, 4 years ago) (diff)


Welcome to FAT32 on Netlabs

This is the development home for FAT32 driver for eComStation and OS/2.

Getting the sources

In addition to browsing? the sources here, you can check out the sources with your favorite subversion client.

Keep in mind that, unlike cvs, tags and branches are ordinary directories in subversion. With the typical subversion repository layout, it is rather easy to checkout more than you probably intend to. To pull just the trunk version, use something like

mkdir FAT32_workspace
cd FAT32_workspace
svn checkout trunk

To update your workspace with the current repository content, use

cd FAT32_workspace\trunk
svn update

If you want commit access to the repository, contact Adrian.

Getting binaries

Now stable version is 0.9.13, binaries are available from Hobbes:

Alpha version of new branch 0.10 is available at This version includes: 1) FORMAT routine, based on Fat32format, ported from win32 2) CHKDSK, run on fat32.ifs init, instead of running from cachef32.exe.


Building FAT32

About FAT32

This project is based on the original FAT32 source code by Henk Kelder who was kind enough to release the source to Netlabs ( in January 2002 because he no longer used OS/2. As a result, it is now a Netlabs project with the full source code always available. He has kindly allowed us to take over maintenance and support of FAT32 and to release the program under the GNU LESSER GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE which can be found at


As you might have suspected, FAT32 is a Netlabs project. The project URL is FAT32

The user support mailing list is at FAT32 Users Mailing List (not currently available)

Like all Netlabs mailing list, this is mirrored to gmane.

In addition the maintainers, monitor the comp.os.os2.programmer.misc newsgroup and others in the comp.os.os2.* hierarchy.

There is also a Yahoo group at
