BACKING UP YOUR PROGRAM DISKS

You should always make a backup of each of your software disks. The backup, or working copy, is for everyday use. Put the original in a safe place. Then, if something happens to the working copy you can make another copy from the original.

1) Have your "DOS ToolBox" diskette and a blank diskette ready.

2) Bring up the "C>" prompt and type "DISKCOPY A: A:" and then press the Enter key. This tells the computer to copy the disk in drive A to another disk which will later be put in drive A.

3) Follow the instructions on the screen. The "CT DOS ToolBox" diskette is the "source" and the blank diskette is the "target."

Note: Your blank disk does not need to be formatted in advance. The "DISKCOPY" command formats the disk at the same time that the files are being copied.
