'[OT]: Windoze file copying'
Faced with the limited the capabilities of some versions of the XCOPY file
copy command I searched for an alternative and
XXCOPY. at http://www.xxcopy.com/xxcopy/
It's freeware, and does everything that Microsoft decided to leave out of
later versions of XCOPY and much much more.
The number of options are mind numbing (for my mind anyway)(160 switches)
but it can be used at a very simple level if desired.

I sent a post to AFAIR PICList recently in which I had drawn an ASCII
Part of the diagram used a line of "XXXXXX"s.
I subsequently received a message from an ISP in the UK advising me that my
message had not been delivered to the addressee due to restricted content
and asking me not to send such content in future :-)
With any lick this message will suffer the same fate and I'll be able to
tell you where it was. I searched the list for addresses from the same ISP
to see whose it was but there was no direct correlation.

Darn it all - I thought everybody knew about and used it. I have been
using it for years now - it is the copy engine used with Datman which turns
a SCSI DAT drive into a general purpose read/write drive. Its been my main
backup method for a couple of years now. Tape is CHEAP!
If anyone has an old HP or Sony or Exabyte or Seagate DAT drive around, you
might want to download the freeware version (limited to 1 GB of storage per
tape). I use the unlimited version (160 USD) but he has less expensive
versions available. Works with DOS, Windows, I'm not sure what else.
Datman can be gotten from http://www.datman.com and has my unreserved respect.
Let me see now - for utilities, I also use: NTDMATCH (a very souped up
version of DirMatch). It allows you to compare 2 directories and perform
all the common maintenance tasks. It is the only tool that I have found
that allows me to synchronize my laptop to my desktop without any hassles.
There is also Powerdesk - it used to be from Mijenix but they sold out to
Ontrack. It has a few warts but generally works as advertised. Tech
support says that they will eventually fix all the problems that I have
found - each new version does indeed fix some of them. It basically is a
very full featured Norton Commander or Directory Freedom type file
utility. It is also available as a limited feature set free version - I
liked it so much that I bought the full version.
I wish there was a web site where we could all list our favorite utilities,
along with links and criticisms.
