Re: Undelete

I agree about DisKnight. Great at hard disc recovery, but not much use as an undelete tool. There was an "undelete" module (by Vertical Twist I think) that kept a track of deleted files and allowed recovery, but it was messy to use. Another option is to use one of the myriad "Trashcan" tools, that j...

Re: WD PiDrive

I'm sceptical as to the longevity of the SD card and would like something a little more permanent. I run RISC OS on a Pi Zero and make regular image backups of the SD card using Win32 Disk Imager, which can be downloaded from Sourceforge. That way, if it gives up, I can simply re-image a new card. ...

Which ZIP USB are you using? I think there are a few different ones.
It is a Zip 100. The model number is Z100USB and model year is 1999.

Folks, Not sure if this has been covered here before, if so I apologise, but there is an excellent way to transfer files from between old RISC OS machines like my A3020 and up to date Windows 10 machines - Iomega Zip drives! As many know, Zip drives are supported by Acorns with bi-directional parall...

Re: Sleuth ROM (1984), Beebugsoft

A bit tricky as my Beeb is stored at the moment. I have a few different copies of this ROM, so I have attached another zip with a couple more. I know that at least one of them works as it is installed in my model B. Sorry about that.

I do not have any eduware, but I do have a decent collection of utility ROMs. For example, I not sure if it is already archived, but I do have a pdf of the ISMEC monitor ROM manual (an early release, when it was known as the BBC monitor). I have not attached it as it is huge at 9MB (zipped). Unfortu...
