The original RCOPY utility (v1.00) supplied with the DataCentre doesn't work on, at least, a Master 128 as it needs to operate from an initialised DFS whereas it always contrives to start up from a RAMFS environment. This caused "Bad string" errors at track 00.
Having disassembled the program I've created a v1.01 source code file in Beebasm format having added the modifications needed for it to work as described in the manual. That file is now on https://github.com/RetroClinic/DataCentre. For anyone wanting just the new executable I've attached an ssd. If your current RCOPY works fine on your platform then stick with it; you'll get no extra benefit from the new version. This has all been done with the blessing of Mark at RetroClinic.
