EZ-Copy Lite allows you to read an entire diskette into memory and then
make as many copies as you want without reading the master diskette
again. To do this it must retain an image of the master diskette in
memory. This image can take up to 360K of storage space. That is the
major reason EZ-Copy Lite requires 640K RAM for operation.

EZ-Copy Lite outperforms DOS's diskcopy both in speed and in safety of
the operation. EZ-Copy Lite speeds up the access times of your disk
drive allowing quicker reads and writes. It also verifys the copy by
checking the CRC written to the diskette during the copy process.

When making a copy, EZ-Copy Lite (unless told otherwise) will check the
diskette to see if it is already formatted and then proceed either with
the copy or the format and copy. Just feed it diskettes, you don't need
to worry about the destination diskette. Nothing could be easier!

System requirements: An IBM PC or totally compatible clone, 640K of RAM,
and IBM PC DOS version 3.0 or later. EZ-Copy Lite
should work with any version of MS DOS 3.0 or later
but has not been tested with all the possible MS DOS

Notes: EZ-Copy Lite (EZCL) is a fast, safe, and easy to use diskette
duplication program. Pull down menus, context sensitive help,
on-line manual, and multiple copies per read are supported.

Times may change as we continue to improve EZ-Copy Lite. Please
note that the faster your computer, the more EZ-Copy Lite out
performs IBM PC DOS.

EZ-Copy Lite can make mutiple copies per read. Diskcopy can't.
EZ-Copy Lite far out performs PC DOS Diskcopy for mutiple copies!

The machines used for testing:

* IBM PC running an 4.77 MHz 8088 with 1 memory wait state
** Zenith Z248 running an 8 MHz 80286 with 1 memory wait state
*** IBM PC AT running an 10 MHz 80286 with 1 wait state (factory 6 MHz)

The above times are affected by the DOS version, both by its revision and
its source (IBM, Compaq, etc). Any small change in your hardware may
throw off the timing of EZ-Copy Lite. Memory resident programs slow down
EZ-Copy Lite and may drastically (up to 50%) slow the disk operations.
Even such a small thing as displaying the track number while copying took
many hours of work to speed up to where it didn't slow down operations.

All tests were run with IBM PC DOS with no memory resident programs. If
your timing tests show results radically different from the above figures
please write us with the figures. If you did better we will praise
EZ-Copy Lite, if you did worse we will try to find something to blame it



EZ-Copy Lite ver 1.0 Aug 1988 Basic Version. Quickly make disk
copies. On-line manual and context
sensitive help make it easy. No
cryptic DOS commands needed.

EZ-Copy Lite ver 1.1 Sep 1988 Added on screen file directory and

  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:
