DESCRIPTION:
-----------
PARK.EXE will park the heads on drive C: and if you have it, drive D:.
This program will work on any hard disk! First the program determines
the number of heads, cyls, and sectors and then issues an absolute
seek to the last track on your hard disk. Since data is written
starting at track 0, the last track is least likely to contain anything
important.


USAGE:
-----
PARK



TIPS:
----
Park should be in a directory that is part of the PATH environment.
You should always park your hard disk before turning off your computer.
On older model disk drives, the heads remain where ever they were
last positioned.

Check your hard disk user guide to see if your drive has an automatic
park feature at power down. If so you would use this program as an extra
measure of security against data loss during extended computer use when
the hard disk will not be used for long periods.

Thank you for trying this software! If you have problems implementing
program, call and you'll find the best customer support you have ever
seen.

Well take care and use this program in good health.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
