³ ±±±± ZCOPY V2.5, Copyright (C) 1993-94 by Chris Buijs ±±±±±±±±±±±±±±±±±±±±± ³

ZCOPY is a small directory/file-copy utility i wrote because i needed a
copy-programm like XCOPY for installation purposes, the only thing was
that XCOPY always overwrite files even when the source/target file are
the same, i needed a copy-utility that skipped files that are the same,
so i wrote ZCOPY.

ZCOPY is here-by placed in Public Domain and can be concidered freeware,
ZCOPY may not be sold, hired, leased or modified, it may be freely copied
as a complete package, usage of ZCOPY in comercial environments is only
permitted with explicit approvement of the Author of ZCOPY (Chris Buijs).

What does ZCOPY do:

- ZCOPY will copy any directory or file (also read-only, hidden,
system etc.)

- ZCOPY will preserve file date, time and attributes.

- ZCOPY will check for enough disk-space on the target drive.

- ZCOPY is FAST (About 300% faster then XCOPY).

And last but not least, ZCOPY shows more information then XCOPY itself.
