P.R.E.S./ACP Advance File Manager - Anyone have a copy?

Post by daveejhitchins » Tue Sep 06, 2016 9:05 am

Reading the Forum threads, today, I followed a link to magazine advertisement (1989) (I'm getting worse . . . I can't remember* what topic it was :? ) and while I was there I had a good browse. Came across the P.R.E.S. advert and noticed two items that caught my eye. The first was the "new and improved AP3" - Now this must have been the introduction of the clone that P.R.E.S. did (we'd parted company by then!) as there was not a MKII version from me. The second was an advertisement for the AFM. I don't remember this product, at the time, so would be interested to have a play. It seemingly didn't get a very good review, in an article that I've just read - siting it was a little clumsy and overpriced.

I've found the User guide but not the ROM image. So if anyone has this I'd be grateful for a copy - Thanks.

Edit * found it here

Found I had several versions of Advanced File Manager (attached is the highest version I have), however, I'm now looking for the User Guide . . . [-o<

With many thanks to Elk Towers =D> here's the User Guide for ACPs Advanced File Manager - Make a note, as this can copy between Filing Systems - plus a lot more . . .

Thanks for pointing that out, Col . . . I have the AcornWorld DVD - but it's huge and I haven't even started to investigate it's innards, yet!

So, another big hand to DaveE for all the fantastic work he's done =D>
