Raw is the format that is used if a format option is not specified (eg the default).

Note that some formats (such as compressed .imd) are read only.
Most non raw formats are copied into ram or parsed on initialisation.

A useful trick with raw format is to use a symbolic link in the configuration file. It is then possible to change the symbolic link from a command shell while xbeaver is running to change floppy disk. Do not try this trick with formats that are cached

ps - check the first sector matches your system especially the first two bytes.
