COPY A FILE

If you want to copy a file, use the up arrow and down arrow keys to position the pointer next to the file to be copied. Then press the [C] key. The prompt "Press down-arrow to copy filename to another filename. To Path:" will appear. If you press the down-arrow at this prompt you will make a copy of the file in the current directory. You will be prompted for the name of the duplicate. By entering another pathname at the above prompt you can copy the file to another subdirectory (pathname). Type the name of the drive and subdirectory that the file is to be copied to, then press the [Enter] key. The file will be copied to the new directory but the file name will stay the same.


 (New Users: See "Changing the Path.")

If you are copying from a disk in Drive A to the hard disk, then type "C:" [Enter], and the subdirectory name when "To Path:" appears. If you are copying from the hard disk to a disk in Drive A, then type "A:" [Enter], when "To Path" appears. You must have a formatted disk in drive A. When you specify only the drive name such as C:, the file will be copied to the "current directory" on that drive.
