CPDISK is a diskette duplication program that allows you to easily make
multiple copies of diskettes with or without formatting.

You only insert the source diskette ONE TIME and then the program will
repeatedly make copies of that first diskette. Format detection is
automatic, both on 3 1/2 and 5 1/4 floppies.

Required for use of the CPDISK program is a fixed disk with at least
as much free space as an entirely blank floppy of the type you are planning
to copy, OR the same amount of XMS.

/D - disk buffering only. Disables use of XMS.

/D::\" - use specified path for temp file (e.g. a vdisk...)
Example: "CPDISK B: /D:E:\" uses the root of the e-drive
(The above option was conceived by Timo Salmi, moderator at garbo.)

/N - No verify on write. Risky but fast. Great for in-laws.

/Cnnnn - Compare diskettes. This option has not been tested on all diskette
formats yet. Stops after nnnn mismatches.

  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:
