Archiving floppies?

Hi Gordon,

I got a tiny program (jus one 32 KB file) from 1991 written by Christian
Schaaf. One should use it in DOS but normally it also works fine in a
DOS-box from Windows. Unfortunately it?s in German language but I think it?s
quite easy to work with it. Otherwise I would try to translate it for you.
It copies a floppy into one file onto a hard disk saving the disk?s volume
label as well which may be important. You can also save a short description
in the file saved on the hard disk e.g. containing a serial number. As the
program is more than 10 years old I think we don?t have to worry about the
copyright too much. I?ve been searching for a hint how to contact the author
but can?t find anything. A company?s name is not mentioned. If you are
interested in the program, please let me know.
