CopyQM Version 3.12 (COPYQ312.ZIP)
CopyQM is a diskette duplicating program that, since its introduction in
1987, has set the standard for PC duplication software. This program is
by far Sydex's most popular, though we do offer a complete line of programs
related to diskette duplication and conversion. Call us if you have a
CopyQM reads a master diskette and formats, writes and verifies duplicates
of the master diskette. Copying can be performed on up to six drives in
a single session; copies are written on only one drive at a time.
"No Hands" operation is featured--after you've started things, you needn't
touch the keyboard again; just insert diskettes in drives as needed.
In addition to the basic operating mode, CopyQM features the following:
1. Conversion between different formats. Unlike competing
products which just copy the same format to different
drives, CopyQM actually rebuilds the diskette format to
match the drive. It's possible to convert from a 360K
format to a 1.44M format. And you wind up with 1.44M
worth of diskette space.
2. Support of image files. An image file created by CopyQM
is a complete description of the information on a diskette.
You can enter a comment to be included (registered version).
The image file is checksummed with a 32-bit CRC.
3. Copies Mac HD and DOS diskettes with no special processing.
Will copy most PC-readable diskettes regardless of format
with the "Blind" option.
4. "SMART" mode will format diskettes only when needed.
5. Faster copying by copying only active data--the empty area
on a partially-filled diskette is not copied.
6. "Plus version" includes serial numbering facility, insertion
of copy-protection information, diskette maintenance utility,
self-extracting image files and more.
7. Menu or command-line interface with complete on-line help.
8. Choice of direct hardware access or use of BIOS routines.
