I / Purpose of DKI
==================

DKI (for DisK Information) was initially designed to give a clear
view of your drives free disk space. A good place for it is within
AUTOEXEC.BAT file.

It was then completed by a more sophisticated analyse of the disk units,
detailling the type (hard disk, network , ...) with technical information
if available (details about partitions, cd-rom tracks, ...) and
physical information (for IDE, SCSI, CDROM disks).

Finally, it was extended to recursive file and directory management :
you can count, find and delete files and directories.

To get a summary of it's possibilities, type DKI /?.

This software is distributed as shareware. This means that you can use
it and test it for 30 days, but you have to register if you are using
it regularly. The registration fee is only US$ 10, so it's cheap for you
but it will encourage me for the next DKI ... (see chapter VII).



II / Technical details
======================

1) Identified programs
----------------------

- Operating systems : DOS, DR-DOS, Windows, DesqView.
- Disk compression : Stacker, Superstor, Double Disque, DoubleSpace.
- Networks : Novell Netware Lite, 2.2, 3.11, PairWare, PC LAN,
LanSmart, Lan Manager, Lantastic, Workgroups, PC-TCP.
- Disk-cache software : SmartDrive 4+, Pc-cache 8+,
Norton Cache 5, 6 et 7 (Ncache2).


2) Identified disk units
------------------------

Floppy, Hard disk, ram-disk, compressed disk, SCSI syquest, CDROM,
network, remote units (DRIVEMAP, INTERLINK), substitued units.


3) Collected physical data
--------------------------

IDE disk's name, partitions, SCSI units (via ASPI), CDROM tracks.




III / Use examples
===================

1) Global units state
---------------------

=> DKI

All units state.

=> DKI C: D:

State of specified units.



2) Technical information
------------------------

=> DKI /p

Note : if you have more than 25 lines of information, try :

=> DKI /pm

Note : DKI can give you details even about non formated IDE disks, or IDE
disks with a format different than DOS. It can handle 2 controllers.



3) Full information
-------------------

=> DKI /v (or /vm)

Note : in this mode, DKI counts all your files and directories, and
this operation may take a long time. Just press 'Esc to abort it.



4) Information about disks, directories
---------------------------------------

=> DKI c:\.
DKI \windows


Note 1 : you can mix commands :

DKI c: d:
DKI c:\dos c:\windows d:

Note 2 : if you just want to study your PATH directories :

DKI /e



5) Summary by directories
-------------------------

=> DKI \windows /0

Lists all the sub-directories from \windows, detailing the number of
files inside, and the size occupied by the directory on the disk.

=> DKI C:\ /1

Lists all the first-level directories of drive C:

=> DKI d:\*.gif /1 (ou 2 ou 3)

Lists all the directories of level 1, 2 or 3, containing .GIF files.

Note : you can work on all your drives with a single command :

=> DKI $:*.exe /1

Lists the directories containing programs for all your drives.



6) Files information
--------------------

=> DKI c:\dos\*.exe

Lists all the programs inside C:\DOS, specifying their date and size.

=> DKI c:\windows\*.dll /0

Lists all Windows's DLL, and displays their total size by directory.



7) Deleting a directory or a set of files
-----------------------------------------

=> DKI c:\windows /d

Deletes completely a 'thing' called Windows !

=> DKI $:*.swp /d

Deletes all the files with extension SWP of all your drives.

Note : if DKI encounters a read-only file, it ask you for confirmation
before deleting it..

Note 2 : you can create a DOSKEY macro : DOSKEY XDEL = DKI $* /D.




IV / List of all DKI's commands
================================

/0 : lists all the directories scanned during a file search.
/1,2: same as above, but for directories before level 1 or 2

/a : displays with ASCII 7 bits filter and no color, to allow
for example the storing into a BBS message.

/d : Delete mode, to delete recusively directories and files specified
Be careful with this command, because the deletion is quite fast,
so you have no time to have regrets after it is started !

/g : dbuGing information (for me).

/e : scans the directories of the DOS PATH variable.

/i : makes DKI's installation easier, by looking for an appropriate
location where to copy DKI, and by updating your AUTOEXEC.BAT file
to add DKI and an XDEL macro.

/m : switches to Maxline mode (50 lines).

/p : Physical information.

/v : Verbose mode.

/* : Full-information mode.


Note : if you want to print DKI results, you have to redirect the
standard output on a file, and then print this file
Example : DKI /p > DKI.TXT then COPY DKI.TXT PRN

Notes :
1) In case of Stacker drive, the compression rate is displayed (1.5), and
the total disk size is the real size (and not the theorical which is
usually the normal size multiplied by 2).

2) For substitued drives, the size occupied by the real drive is displayed
in grey color.

3) At the end of the total line, Phys indicates the real physical size,
and Net the real size accessible by network.

4) Total-host means the total size minus the size occupied by all the host
files containing a compressed disk.

and the entry number in this table.
