Title: Classic AmigaOS DiskSalv 4
Post by: hazydave on February 05, 2014, 07:27:07 PM
This never quite made it out as a freebie, but it should have. DiskSalv 4 is free for any use.

While this is on "The Deathbed Vigil" DVD, it's not widely known. And it's probably pirated widely, but now that's legal. The whole thing is here as a ZIP: http://www.frogpondmedia.com/dump/DiskSalv4.zip

This is public domain... all are free to copy this anywhere, etc.

I'm working on tracking down the sources, which will also be available to anyone interested.

Thank you! I still have the retail copy I bought years back there - But it's great so see this utility in the public domain.

Thanks Dave! I have converted the archive to lha and uploaded it to Aminet. Looking forward for the sources, it would be nice to have them uploaded there too.

Thank you Dave! what a nice gift! nowadays I use Toni Willen's PFS3_aio but I still have may floppy disks and some HDs using FFS so it could be handy. Did it ever support >4GBs?

FFS? Of course, in OS 3.5 and 3.9.

+1, had a major paper due for University and DiskSalv saved my floppy at the last minute allowing me to print out the report at 6:30am on my dot matrix printer after pulling all nighter!
I literally kissed the floppy :p

A big thank you for this gift and, more generally, all the rest.
