FAST FORMATTER is designed to format any number of diskettes
sequentially, using both your drives.

All the DOS 2.0 format options are available to you - the
program will ask if you want single or double sided diskettes,
how many sectors, and so on.

If you specify a volume label, the label will be incremented
after each diskette is formatted, so your diskettes will be
sequentially labelled. The portion of the label that
increments can be alphabetic or numeric, and need not be at
the end of the label. The program will ask you to show it
which letter or number to increment, so a label such as
3AA_BOX1
could be the beginning of a sequence which ends at 3ZZ_BOX1.

As an additional safeguard against loss of valuable data, the
program allows you to specify that it only format blank
diskettes. If you don't exercise this option, check that
stack of diskettes to be formatted carefully!

  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: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
