DUPDSK is my alternative to the DISKCOPY program supplied on the DOS disks.
The program was written in TURBO Pascal Version 3.0 using routines found in
public domain as well as my own ideas. It was written to fill a need that I
had to be able to quickly produce multiple copies of software releases for a
PC based payroll system that company that work for wrote. DUPDSK will make
copies of 360k diskettes in about 25 seconds on a IBM PS/2 model 50 provided
that previously formatted disks are used. (Your Mileage May Vary). If needed
DUPDSK will format your disks for you faster than DOS can. DUPDSK requires
only one read of the master disk and because of this you must have at least
400k of available memory to run DUPDSK.

I believe in giving credit where credit is due and since I did include a
few routines from the public domain libraries of TURBO routines here we go:

Menu & windowing Routines : TECHNOJOCKS TURBO TOOLKIT, Bob Ainsbury

Disk Formatting Routines : By: Bill Bliss , The Whitewater Group

Disk Copy Routines : By: Kim Kokkonen , TurboPower Software

Thanks guys, for releasing your efforts into public domain.

  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:
