Once I was looking for a file. I was sure that it was on one of my old floppy disks. After looking in a box with maybe over hundred floppies, I lost my courage. Then I found a small drawer cabinet, with even a lot more floppies. It was time to solve the problem. All my disks to a CDRom.
After looking on Internet, where I found only one program, which did not exactly work as I liked, I decided to make my own.
The program copies all files and directories from a floppy disk to the harddisk. When all floppies are copied they can be burned to a CDRom. If there are several floppy disk who belongs together as a group, for example Borland Pascal 6 then all floppies from such a group can be placed in the same directory. After that, each floppy goes into its own subdirectory.
One important point: every floppy disk must have a label (name). This name is used for the name of the subdirectory where the files are copied to.
The second thing to do is to select the Destination Path. The name of the disk is used to create a subdirectory in the Destination Path. Each floppy disk goes into its own folder.
Finaly click on the "Start Copy" button. Now the files will be copied.
If there is no source disk there will be a "yellow alert".
