Color Configuration File DISKLEFT.CFG
Colors are preconfigured, but may be changed to suit your taste in a
configuration file, called DISKLEFT.CFG. This file must reside in the
directory in which you install DISKLEFT.EXE (if running under DOS 3 or later),
or in the current directory (under DOS 2).

DISKLEFT.CFG is created if it is not found. DISKLEFT.CFG contains
instructions to modify the default color set.

This is the contents of the default file:


This is DISKLEFT's color configuration file. Only the first
two lines above are meaningful to the program. You may change
the values in them, using your favorite ASCII editor. Follow
the instructions below. The values represent:

On line 1:
SETCOLOR or SETMONO (if you want to force monochrome)

On line 2 (separated by commas, in the order listed):
Common background color
Fixed data areas
SUBSTituted/ASSIGNed Drives
Fixed drives
Network drives
Unavailable drives
Floppy drives
RAM drive
Grand total (shown only if you have network drives)

The numbers on line 2 are color values and mean this:

0 Black 8 Grey
1 Blue 9 Light Blue
2 Green 10 Light Green
3 Cyan 11 Light Cyan
4 Red 12 Light Red
5 Magenta 13 Light Magenta
6 Brown 14 Yellow
7 White 15 Bright White

The only restriction imposed is the common background color
cannot be the same as any of the other colors. If this
occurs, the default colors will be set.

NOTE: If you use the SETMONO option to force monochrome (or the /MONO command
line option), your color choices will be ignored.
