Parks the heads on an AT or PS/2 system.

Syntax:
UPS [/Q][/C][/Knnn] [?]

Options:
? - Display this screen.
/Q - Quiet mode. Only error messages are displayed.
/C - Clear screen before executing.
/Knnn - Key nnn is used to re-enable system.
where nnn is the decimal ASCII code for the key.

Notes:
This program will park the heads on up to two hard disk drives. This
program will only function on an IBM AT, PS/2 or compatible system.

Most head parking programs place the heads over the last cylinder.
This is the correct location for most drives. However, it is not always
correct. The correct method for determing this location is to read
the shipping zone from the disk parameter table. This is the method
used by UPS. The shipping zone is not stored in the PC or XT disk
parameter table.

  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/
