From the online help:
-&[f|l|u Span disks [Format|format Low density|Unconditional
format|
ul|w|v] Unconditional Low density|Wipe disk|enable dos Verify|
[s[drive]] Back up entire disk w/ subdirs (-rp) [drive to back

A simple PKZIP -& A:PICTURE TOOBIG.BMP should do the trick, assuming
the floppies are formatted.
