You could just copy some random adf file in Windows and then format it in a WinUAE Workbench if needed.

I also think WinUAE had a "Create Disk" button in the UI. It will be under the disk floppy drives tab.

You can create & edit ADFs with adfopus.

Also, Most adf libraries or collections have a blank disk item. I remember blank.adf going around.

I appreciate everyone who replied. I donwloaded the adf exe file and might try it later.
i found the create floppy button in amiga forever. the adf file from aminet should do the trick, I can
just extract it to the right dir and i can start saving. Thank you all !!!
